The last flower alive

16/31

I was born as a flower on a water-colour painting;

A meek and mild-mannered myothosis,
surrounded by three flowers, but I’m different from them.

I know I am.

They are content to remain the way they are, 
Two-dimensional and tamed.

I don’t wanna be painted with serious, sensible colours,
I want to explode in a rainbow of bright pink and crass yellow,
and I wont let Age become my killer.

I was born to rattle my frame,
born to burn a hole in it,

and break free
