" Be the change you wish to see in the world"- Gandhi

You see that flower,
Perfect, Beautiful, Open
That flower has fully blossmed
Up to it's highest height,
To it's most georgeous color.

But me, just a bud,
Is not Perfect
Is not Beautiful
Is not Open

I am that prickly weed.
No one wants me to grow
In their social garden.

Although this poem does not fully embody my personal opinion of myself, sometimes it comes pretty close! My inspiration was just the nervous feelings I sometimes get.
