Choose YOU is a short poem written by Taskia Alam and shared with The Ugly Writers for the month of January.
clinging to the very earth you towered above.
Teardrops water your desiccated roots
That were once filled with life
Sorrows that Foster your soul.
It breaks-off your own self worth
Your notions ascertain it eternal
But it’s just an illustration you hold
Your bleeding heart
It is the incandescent dirt you shake loose.
Look up to the future
If not all and Sundry
In the end, it’s all you.
