Many Layers (Pound Cake)

There’s many layers to this sweet;


Honey bun,

Hmm yeah, I know

I’ll probably taste good on your tongue

but please don’t box me in

I’m just vibrant, here for all the fun

..things life has to offer.

I can’t help it.

Human beings swear they have you all figured out

How can you fully know what continues to grow ?

An enigma;

even she which inhabits this space knows not why she deserves it.

She continues to strive in spite of the strife

Your puny minds could never comprehend;

What have you been through? What does “hardship”  mean to you?

Unfortunately; some experiences are better shared


this life walk may be too much her to even wish it on an enemy to bear.
