I have no idea what this poem means

You cannot heal me with your broken words,
smothered by your good intentions all renewal withers.

I shall be well
when the taste of life explodes in my heart
like sherbet on a tongue.

I am not your responsibility, I am my own
I cultivate my own garden
and what pleases me shall flourish
you cannot decide what I should keep
that choice is mine
and with it I will find redemption.

    An anthem to independence and self-discovery. Wonderful piece.

    No idea Huh? I think it certainly says “Keep off my patch” {Just hope it wasn’t me that inspired it!}

      No, it was just a random need that happened in the midst of a solitaire game last night. I tried to ignore it, but it insisted. I still don’t know what it means.

    Nor do I, but it’s a great piece of poetry. Makes you think, which is what poetry is all about, isn’t it? 🙂
