“Cherry Petals on Water”
Inspiration piece

By Kamika Cooper

you heard what they said about me
and you believed every word
shook me right off your tree
like the fruit I grew was just for the birds

it rained hard for days and days
after that random evening storm
we each went our separate ways
so i had no choice but to fall and float on

i don’t know what they said about me
but i was left alone on the forest floor
a creek formed and set me free
i will never be what i was before
