Pavement of Repetition part 2

 You were so 
full of life and
uniqueness and inspiration 
to those like me 
looking for a voice 
to cry out and be 
oneself, shuffle off
such mortal coil 
and fly high above 
the elements of 
repetition.
Yet I saw your 
roots now, they 
run deep, breaking 
free from the cold 
pavement and saw 
life jetting up

You friend are birthed, 
live die and are 
born anew in all 
uniqueness. You don't
conform to one mold 
but are willing to 
change with the seasons 
of life and just be.
Be green
Be red
Be brown
Be puke-green
Be old
Be young
Be new
Be you 
you are the teacher 
of this poem 
Be yourself 
and look up from 
the pavement of 
repetition
