like a clamshell, i take dirt and make something beautiful out of it.
i take pain and decorate my insides.
this will sustain my days of blossom.
beauty everlastingly in utero.
like a clamshell, some people feel entitled to me.
they rip me open. steal my jewels. steal my joy. steal my hard work.
i remain strong.
i continue creating.
this too shall pass.
this too shall create something beautiful.
