"Be the angel you're sworn to be: spread your wings and fly" :)


I'm not the perfect flower,
My petals sometimes fall,
My body sometimes wilts,
I'm not always standing tall.

My seeds do not disperse,
My colors sometimes fade,
My leaves will sometimes shrivel,
But more will soon be made.

But when the rain falls hard,
And the sun shines bright,
I take all my strength-
Grow with all my might.

All my imperfections,
Make me so unique,
And I'm the type of flower,
A lot of people seek.

You're not the perfect flower,
Your roots sometimes let go,
But wait for rain then sun,
Because you'll bloom too, you know.


The author's comments:
I believe that this piece can describe any teenage girl going through a rough time. High school can be so rough sometimes, and a girl may not seem like she fits in - I was one of those girls. I, unlike most people, took anger out on writing.
This poem is just to show that everyone will have their chance to bloom, they just have to wait for a good time and they live their life to the fullest.

Thanks. I was trying to change things up a bit. I'm trying to be a better writer, and advice like this helps.

This is quite unlike the other poem you did, "Mirrors". I really like how you said it but I don't like what was said. Its not that I don't like it but it just isn't my preference. It is a good message for someone else other than me. 4 stars.
