I feel like this blade of grass,
Which I hold in my hand.
First picked at,
Until only my coat is left,
Then off they pull it,
Stripping me bare,
Bare to the skin,
With the wind,
Nipping at my exposed being.
I no longer have a cover,
Nothing to mask,
The being I hide,
The side of me,
Which I hate.
So why, why?
Why must you pick,
Tearing what I built,
Just for fun?
If you must,
Then please, please,
Don't turn away,
When you see my real self,
Don't toss me away,
Like I'm a piece of trash.
Don't step on me,
Because you have power over me.
Please,
Hold me close.
And yes, the grass was suppose to be a weed, but when I thought about it, there's more blades of grass than weeds, and people mask their true self to be like others. Very few people, it seems, be themselves instead of following the crowd.

It does seem like everyone wants to be like everyone else instead of being themselves. And I think the "Why" on the seventh line from the bottom should be "When" but idk. I may be wrong. . .
