    The Flower in Me

    By Amanda K. Girard

    I am like a flower
    Not sure of when I will die.
    Not sure of when I will grow back again
    When I am crushed with pain and cry.

    I am not sure if I can hold myself up
    When I ache with unbearable pain.
    What do I do when my petals fall off?
    Do I go find them out in the rain?

    What do I do when I'm not given enough water, to make it through the day?
    What do I do when I look up in the sky?
    And the sun doesn't show a ray?

    I stand as tall as a flower would,
    As long as I possible can.
    I will stand and show my colors,
    That is what I plan.

    I may drupe and my petals may fall,
    But that won't stop me from growing.
    My love, honesty and beauty,
    I will keep showing.

    I am like a flower,
    Strong and supreme.
    I may be trampled on,
    But I will never lose faith in my dreams.

    I love the poem. Unfortunately, it sounds like the story of my life in a nutshell, especially the first half. I am starting to live out the second half of the poem but am finding it very difficult to do. Hopefully one of these days it will look achieveable. It's a great poem. If you find anymore, don't hesitate to share them. Peace! :)

    hi Peace

    I'm sorry the first half is going on right now. Hopefully the second half will unveil soon for you :hug: I certainly will post more as I find them. i have wrote some poetry of my own but they are kind of lame and depressing, so I don't share them.
