Good Seed - Replanted

Beautiful things spring from the worst soil.

A decade in this house
The one I knew picked me
Oh how I tried …
And for a while, it was
A place where our blended family grew to be
And our girls blossomed
Though the yard was never planted
All the while you deteriorated
Carelessly destroying roots
And I finally hated you for it
Once you were gone
And my son returned from the desert
We looked in the attic
To find you ruined our own clan’s history
And your perverted history revealed
I learned more about you in that one ladder climb
Than I ever knew married to you
Still, ten years later
It is home
But not yours
I am planted
A perennial
