Here’s a poem to give you a flavour by Sheena Bradley
Before, I was not
And now, I am
In this place and at this time.
Rain, hail or shine I will hold up my head And bloom…
And not just so that I might be seen, That I might be admired
No, I do not need your praise.
Celebrated or unnoticed Until I’m trampled or I fade, For fade I will
