Favorite Quote:
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. " - Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you shall judge me
I will not change.
Whil you look at me
not like a mother to her newborn,
But like a monster
to the dreams created
by a faithful and good spirit
in a shallow valley.

You shall criticize my scatter
While my goosebumps shiver
dehydrated water
onto a dead flower
which will be still,

And not grow.

Not until you criticize
my mess,
my conditions,
and the way
I make you starve.
Not until my estimation achieves
to no longer be
The outlier of your dreams.

Crystal clear water
with a brilliance
and microscope
Shall breathe through
The veil which you title
The Underestimating Dreamer.

I shall believe your judgement
To change the dead to rose,
For I am Rose
And you
Shall believe the rose's agreement
To be beautiful.
I am supposed to be beautiful,
so criticize me
with water which is not dehydrated.
A rose thirst for water
which exists.

Water cannot be dehydrated,

and your judgement
will not make me grow.

The author's comments:
The wrong kind of judgement will most likely not be learned from because the wrong kind of judgement is spiteful and harmful. While you care for the ones you love, the truth is the only kind of judgement that should be given or recieved. With that you will grow.
