the shadow is cast long
and dark I
lay hidden
from the sunlight

the tall vines and the birds are
the only ones to examine
another side

my beautiful white petals will never
be seen

but
I am still here
lost or forgotten
tall and strong

I like this. Simple, but somehow meaningful and beautiful. Fantastic job. Please read, rate, and comment on my poems. It would mean a lot.

I really like this poem. I had to read twice to really  understand it but I loved it.
