I am a weed

No one wants me growing in their backyard

They pull me up and throw me out

But I grow back

I follow them everywhere

Not letting them forget what they have done to me

Making them rue the day they did it

I only grow stronger

Along the way someone else throws me out

But I'm stronger

And they immediately regret it

People look at me in disgust

They don't realize what I can do

Or how strong I am

It's the makeup we wear over our souls

That make us look pretty

But no one knows how ugly we are inside

We are all weeds

A disgrace to all beautiful flowers

But one day a handful of us will be that beautiful

Inside and out
