11 June – Moss on my window

You’re right I should be protected,
it’s overdue time for some serious alarm,
but let me remind you I’m more easily adapted,
than fatally, finally harmed.
I’ll still find my ways of growing,
despite your UPVC,
I’ll break through your concrete with petals,
you’ll struggle to ever tame me.
You’ll find me when least expected,
asserting myself in new ways,
remember I was here before you,
I’ve weathered countless days.
I’m not suggesting complacent inaction,
but I am reminding you to hope,
my true present and potential future
are way beyond your scope!
