The Fern Plant

By

Renee Odoi

I sat there day in and day out
Looking and observing quietly
The wind, my dear friend
Oh, how you moved me
The sun, my first love
Oh, how you warmed me
I sat there each day
I sat there, and you all still came
The blackness is near
And yet I shall not fear

I sat there day in and day out.
Waiting for my time
Oh, those shadowy creatures
Once my true enemy
Why must you wait
Why must to stay
I sat there each day
Yet you still came
Ripping out the vibrant one
Cowardly waiting for my end
Yet I do not fear

I sat there day in and day out
My memories stay flashing back
The life I have lived
The life I once lived
My time has come
The fire approaches
Yet I do not fear

Three
Two
One
Done

My life is now done
