to the seeker and the strange

not all beautiful things grow
in the well-manicured garden
splendor wild and untamed abounds
if you have the courage to explore
and the eyes to see it
do not be satisfied with the easily obtained
for things cheaply bought
are rarely treasured

luxuriate in your rough beauty
flourish in the soil where you belong
your natural habitat
be the creature you were meant to be
and love yourself
even in the absence of the love
of others
