Sunflowers by Aaishah Mayet

The people we become
Slashed by our burdens
Dashed by our missions
Embittered in the toil

The soul of the soil
Beats in resilience
Earth-scented richness
Glints of gold dust

As seeds split
And cheerful petals turn full faced
Receiving the sun
From East to West
Facing each other
Each a sun to the other
At sundown
