Dandelion

Smriti Sinha

Don’t try to fix me
I am beyond repair
Let me break into pieces
Let my words remain unshared
Alone, let the air take me away
To the uncertain tomorrow
Let me sigh and weep unseen
For I was destined.
I was destined
To be a dandelion flower
To be most beautiful
When I crumble.
