My Garden

So I plucked the clusters of weeds growing inside me
Planted my own seeds
And let my tears of relief water the garden

About the author: Giana Gyllenswan is a 16 year old student at Orange High School, in Orange County of North Carolina. She fell in love with all things writing at a very young age, and is now exploring the world of poetry. She has been published previously in The America Library of Poetry's 2016 poetry edition, in a book entitled "Treasures." Poetry, both writing it and reading it, is something Giana says has completely changed her perspective on life. This poem of hers, "My Garden," is something she wrote about her own personal growth.
