Wildflowers

$5.00 USD

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free

– Tom Petty

Wildflowers is one of my favorite songs by the late Tom Petty; it resonates with me. To be free, to be who we are, without the confinements of who society and social norms think we are “supposed” to be — appreciating our unique qualities. Being happy with who we are, without worry.
