trying - growth

I was mostly afraid

I hadn’t done enough.

Just like before I’d been afraid 

I’d done too much

of the watering

and fretting over 

the growing things.

Came back and it looked dead, done.

But came out today, 

having halfheartedly watered 

in some kind of mourning state

and found 

the growth endured and things

were still living

after all.
