Black flowers are different
but that didn't stop them,
from hanging with a pack
of white flowers, so soft and gentle,
easily stained by everything around it.
Black flowers could be described as depressing and rough.
But that didn't stop them,
from hanging with a pack
of red roses, rising rapidly,
so sweet and sometimes sour,
some days nice and standing tall
others mean and drooping, half dead.
Black flowers could be described as resilient and tough,
but that doesn't stop them,
from hanging,
with every flower alive.

Breathtaking! The last line seals the picture you painted! Your extended metaphor of flowers as people is very unique. This poem really speaks to me, I feel like a black flower too. Very well written poem!
