Sweet Decay

my bud has bloomed    
my flower has blossomed  
into something    
    
rather quite solemn.    
   
'neath the soil    
creates much turmoil    
a breed of weeds    
   
with desperate needs.    
   
they bend to lend    
and grow from woe    
to die for life    
   
to die for foe.    
   
this covers their tracks    
and covers their home    
but 'neath it all    
   
they're their own hoe.    
   
my stem is wrapped    
my leaves are torn    
piece by piece    
   
i feel so worn.    
   
my petals fall    
to sing a song    
'all in all    
   
i'll never belong.'    
   
eating  the truth    
in exempt dismay    
i come to find out    
   
i'm just a sweet decay.
