    There was a beautiful flower
    of a hue not quite seen b4
    As exquisite as a rose
    Delicate as a daisy
    With the strength of a tree
    But this flower could not see
    it's true beauty
    It was too busy noticing
    all the tulips, roses and lillies
    that surrounded it...strangling it
    suffocating it and taking it's life
    No matter how the flower tried to fit in
    it always stood apart
    The flower prayed for beauty, grace and love
    But if it could only see
    It already possesed all of these qualities
    The flower wondered why it was the only one of it's kind
    Not understanding there were others spread in between
    the tulips, roses and lillies
    The problem was it couldn't see
    beyond its small world of tulips, roses and lillies
    And that flower is me!
    Lost in a sea of wannabe me's

    Nice scribe my sista, no need to feel lost
    you are you, an amazing flower.
    Never concern yourself with others
    Just do you.


    Much Luv

    Such strength in the realization that you are beautiful and wonderful just as you are. Those delicate petals hold such power poetess.

    Thanks for the love 4ever, Watz, and Rich. I'm through another transition in life and trying to figure out who I am and how that fits into the world.
