The Rose Beyond Your Wall.

a poem by peninnah ng'ang'a, Kenya

24/7 i was right here. Besides your shadow, at the realm of arms stretch...All you had to do was look. I kept my colors bright, sheen in my petals, fresh scent, all i thought was right for you...
24/7 something else was on your mind, someone else or some place perhaps,always was more important....
All i needed was a second of your minute, a simple glance, a stare...i waited on the line hoping perhaps one day will be mine...
All i needed was for you to see me.But not until he saw me,that i crossed your mind.
The Rose Beyond Your Wall.
