Be a Poppy

In a world of conformity
of noise
of speed
of bitesize news and sound bites.

Where difference is often mocked
or even despised.

Be like a Poppy!

Stand out from the crowd.

Grow in ground that’s newly turned.

Dance your own dance.

Sing your own song.

Even if only you can hear it.

Show your colours.

Stand tall and bloom
in your own sunlight.
