I Am

I am an old house awaiting residence.
I know what it is to be filled with love one moment
and emptiness the next.
Though I may need curb appeal, great potential
lies beyond the door.

I am a loud song wanting to be heard.
Dynamic and strong; meaningful layers
fill up a space.
Though the sound does not appeal to all, I know
someone will want to rock out to my tune.

I am a spring garden of colorful bursts
Lonely winters have wilted my blooms, but
my roots remain, anticipating the sun.
Though weeds may infringe on my growth,
a little maintainance and love will
allow my beauty to shine.
