soft looks good on you

soft looks good on you my sweet

yet

let it never be confused

for weakness

or frivolity

 

your softness

cushions

all that is sharp

and hard

that has attempted to break you

 

and yet

you have remained soft

you have fought to be soft

 

how brave you are,

relentless flower
