What went wrong?
I left the womb expecting to find
Someone who gave no sign
Of wasted time or failure

Southern grounds were not as good
Wild sun and violent floods
Overwhelming motherhood and strangers

Smile, child
Seeds are signs to know your way
Cherish them
They'll avoid your failure

Don't look now
The signs have blown away
None are left
We expect your failure
