Willard Farm

Drifting above the bed of leaves, Aiming to reach the sky, Mimicking the wonderful stars, Shining brighter with each try. 💐 💐 Cajoling of Bees & butterflies, Making me embrace pride, spreading my wings afar, blushing like a bride. 💐 Looking at not so beautiful fate, Dreading now, its power, here lies beside me, once…
