I walk into the garden
The trees are glaring at me
They donít like who I am
The flowers turn their heads
To hide the shame they feel
The grass wilts under my feet
Rather die than be associated with me
The bumble bees go quiet
Theyíre scared to make a sound
I try not to care
I sit on the dead grass
My shoulders heavy from the treeís glare
My eyes drift past the flowers
Who still are looking down in shame
My eyes land on a single shrub
Who is staring into my eyes
This is the thing that scares me the most
This is the thing that wants my head
This is the thing that feels no shame
Or anger
It only wants revenge for the pain
I have made the garden feel
This garden of adolescence

Sadness, like happiness, has its own majestic beauty and must be embraced as a valid emotion, not pushed down as an abnormality.
