Have you ever had a meal so rich you felt
you didn’t deserve it?
Or had a sweet friend give true and heartfelt praise you felt you hadn’t earned?
I dont know how I got here
the way has faded in the rain
I always thought that my dark life would bloom to soft tea rose
Blackberry lips and black smudged eyes
attest to what’s inside
But the superficial flaws have wiped away
the path I sought so long.
I don’t know how I got here
I don’t have anyone to ask
In the middle of the night
between the silence and my past
I thought to change to grow aright
and live a life tea rose
