im living in organized chaos and im good with it...

Blooming slow

A beauty unseen

Colors erupt

And towards the sun they do lean


But as time passes faster

Their beauty does rot

As life becomes death

There they lay; left behind with barely a thought


Determined may they be

To rise once again

As they show to those that left

A flower's beauty which is found within

The author's comments:

This piece can be seen in many ways. When I first started writing it I meant only to describe the life of a flower, but as I finished the last few words I found myself looking towards a new perspective. Instead of a flower being just a flower, it now sybolizes how reality can be. When others see your beauty they start to expect it and once its gone they throw you away. But the last stanza is meant to inspire you to pick yourself back up and show them once more your inner beauty.

This is very good. It reminds me of an old William Blake poem, "The Sick Rose."
