the flower

this one i found by chance in one of my old college copybooks,enjoy :D ;

the flower
is it growing or slowly dieing
its life,is it expanding or shrinking
is her stem really providing her with the nutrition it needs
feeding her
or is it blocking it off
killing her

it chose to stay in this soil,spread its roots underneath
not knowing what lies beneath
soil from heaven,or land of hell
what comes next,may never come
barricades might get built around her,or inside her
grass may grow around to protect her,or eliminate her

she might not be pretty,might never will
might never have friends
she might just die
where she chose to live
and her spirit soar

  1. I like this one as it is less direct and more symbolic than the others. Well-done. Just change 'dieing' into 'dying', otherwise it is well-written.
