TRANSCENDENCE by Lauren

By Lauren, Year 10

Written as part of Factory Feedback

amidst the tranquil sea, 

through the dim forested trees, 

over the fringe where the rocky mountain ranges are, 

lies a 

tall

ugly 

weed from afar.

 

a weed with extending roots, 

a kind of shoot with mundane attributes. 

shunned, rejected, isolated…

was it constantly left separated?

 

however… 

it preferred to be a deformed beauty, 

than a delicate flower. 

something sweeter 

 

and a little less sour. 

 

behind the thorns and the spikes,

reveals an ethereal wonder within. 

as elegant as a gem and

as expressive as its stems. 

 

its everlasting freedom guaranteed, 

the 

     long

           lost 

                 puzzle 

                          pieces 

resemble,
