Beware the flower.
The short head of hair,
The mountain thorns,
And the fire-marked stem.
Beware the flower.

Beware the flower.
The harsh beauty,
The soft heart,
And the hard mind.
Beware the flower.

Beware the flower.
The name,
The fear,
And the blazing temper.
Beware the flower.

I am the flower.
The mountain thorns,
The hard mind,
And the blazing temper.
I am the flower.

I love the dark and light combination. It implies there is more than just what you see. I'd like to see more.
