Life of a Cacti

Life of a Cacti

A Poem by AlinaTheCacti

Eh who knows why I wrote this, perhaps to show people about perspectives

Feelin' all lonely in the sands
Finding all living avoid your hands
Drenched with sweat that no one likes
Pricks, pricks that eat one's hands

Company is none its got
Except for its food, which never talks
Moving is death, living is only breaths
Being a pray with nada defense

Getting bitten by its friends
Greedy living beings, humans or not
Stealing its water, the hard work its got
Dead steals, living take. 
Work and work, in the desert stakes

Barriers put in place,
Pushing all bullies away,
Nothing can survive for long
Except for maybe the halls
Memories covered in sand,
People removing the plan,

One by one, the roots detach,
Feeling the air, feeling bare,
Bad or good, life will tell
Relocated in a plain old' box
Its life depends on yours
Protect me or expose?
Hurt me or help?

Being hard on the outside,
Being vulnerable on the inside,
One last bit, don't pull it down
It worked so hard,
Give it the peace that it deserves,
