Even when you face a difficult moment and fall a little bit behind, as if you’re doing a long jump, wouldn’t you have a longer runway to be able to jump further?


Dreams are like flowers

Some blossom and bloom

Their beauty shown to the world

Their passion never ending

Seasons change

But still they stand – and they shine




Dreams are like flowers

Some blossom and bloom

Their petals opening

Colors brightening

They hope to amaze the world

Seasons change

But they die – and they hide

Fearing the world’s eyes





The beauty overshadows it and it is ashamed

The heat pounds and it withers

The wind blows and it falls

The cold freezes and it breaks

Although beauty lies deep

It fears the world’s eyes

My dreams

My dreams are like flowers

The author's comments:

This is a bit more of a depressing poem, and I apologize for that...but for me personally, this is what I feel at this moment. I'm not that good at writing poems so I hope it isn't too cheesy or sound too forced. The main reason I wrote this is because it was an outlet for what I'm feeling at the moment. But I guess this might also speak to some other people as well. Even though this might not be that good of a poem since I'm still pretty inexperienced at it, hopefully, it has some value to the people who read it.
