What Lies At Your Feet

by Neva Flores
(Georgia, USA)

Turn away from the petals that did not take the time
To look down with pitying tears
Upon the stones which adorned their soil
Pushing aside
What could make their hearts soar high
If not
For shadowy fears

A bit of light is reflected on where you see them lie
Just a blur to those who cannot see
Yet would you their sorrows drown in tears
If you could discern
What real beauty is with your heart
And know
What truly lies at your feet
