Poetic Thoughts: "Still"

 Art by  @PhobyMo

Is there
Still softness
Left in you?

After all
The world
Has put you through?

Do you look at love
With eyes of kindness?
Or do you let bitterness
Lead you to assumptions
And blindness?

Did you let the world eat
your cotton candy softness
and fill you back up
with their nonsense?
