Flower In Concrete

Flower In Concrete

2 mins 159 2 mins 159

Covered in ashes of stardust,

Got this far, few more steps to heaven.

Words are buried deep like orchids,

Wounds are open like a primrose

And it's raining Poseidon's tears.

But if you stay, stay, stay

In the storms of may.

And if you pray, pray, pray

Like a candle on a windy day,

You'll grow like a flower in a concrete rift.

You'll make your way through trenches with faith.

Even if the sun doesn't rise, there's fire in you,

You will have to fight for what belongs to you.


How do I know what do I mean?

Drags myself down to these ghost towns.

Dreams hidden like sepsis in a nail,

Dye fading like dew from cattails,

And aeolus singing words of plath.

But if you play, play, play

Your heart like ballet.

And if you fray, fray, fray

Like a dandelion in a gale,

You'll grow like a flower in concrete rift.

You'll make your way through trenches with faith.

Even if the moon is new, you are the star burning nights,

You don't have wings but spine like a kite.


Ivy covered my skin,

Lies hide my sins and

Broke my quill to make wings.

I breathed my cries,

Their hands are tied and

I hear them sing lullabies to their crimes.

Wait for seed I threw to grow flowers

In concrete rift on my towers.

So if i say,

That I'll grow like a flower in concrete rift.

I'll make my way

To thy roads on signboards.

You should trust me,

You shall see me

Grow like a flower in concrete rift.
