Flower once so bold

Inescapable time so ever leaching

Wilted, young now old

Deaths icy fingers ever reaching

 

Burning life as told

The pain like an inferno

Color now grey mold

Plea to continue to grow

 

The winter coming cold

The lethal claws of frost

The energy now sold

Weakness reminds the flower lost

 

Perceived invincibility false gold

Decide to embrace rotting decay

Lives scroll now unrolled

Farewell the suns last ray

 

Or defy, be uncontrolled

Fight to reverse foul time

Attempt to life uphold

Longer life is no crime

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!
