The Seedling

Harsh words

Hardly a dagger to the heart

Just a papercut, a nuisance 

Left wondering what the underlying message really was

How do I determine the tone – annoyance , disappointment, regret?

I hope for annoyance

Regret and disappointment are old foes I already know too well

And annoyance is but a seedling small and weak

Not a small bush twelve months on, comfortably established

And seedlings are easily plucked out and left to die

Never given another thought

Until you find another
