Undying like a watered plant that never wilted.
The sun fed her growth as her roots began to spread and dig deeper, finding more to hold onto.
If she only knew that she can only go so far.
She spent time digging for more treasure, helplessly sticking her hands into dirt that she had no business controlling.
She began to tear the roots apart to help it find a better path only to realize the dirt stuck under her nails that were once so simple, yet beautiful.
And as she finally took a breath, she suffocated. She gasped for air and looked up to see the light that she once knew but never cherished.
She looked around and saw the chaos after the storm, the mess she’d made.
Sitting there thinking of a way to go back to who she once was.
