Flowers In Bloom
Author: Catyrose


Delicate as a flower
Not yet full grown
Emerald leaves sparkle amidst the morning dew
Covering secrets known only to a few

In time as the petals begin to bloom
All truths are exposed
Under the light of a springtime moon

Even the finest rose
Is bound by its thorns
For each error made, the veil becomes torn

Shredding the mask we all at times wear
To hide our feelings
With the utmost care

Pretty as the daisy
Wearing our own unique colors
Each and every one of us
Becomes like the flower
Waiting expectantly for the next springtime shower

Just like the rose we all shall survive
As the thorns pass on through
Changing the course of our lives

We all become stronger
As time passes by
Until the precious moment
We simply cannot wait any longer!
Growth finally occurs

Now it is spring, alone in full bloom
The sunflower raises her pristine head
No longer does she feel a sense of dread

She looks out at the world that surrounds
Standing steadfast and proud
For her roots are now planted
Deliberately and firmly
In her own solid ground

With experience, comes development, wisdom, strength, courages and thousands of mistakes.
Caty, that was nice comparison between humanity and nature.

Three cheers!
