What Makes a Flower Cry?

What Makes a Flower Cry?

What makes a flower cry?

Is it getting trampled on from a passerby

Not being acknowledged for its beauty by birds in the sky

Always grounded in dirt

Having no wings to fly….

What makes a flower cry?

The pain of blooming in silence

Growth in soft and hardness of natural violence

Its body clashing against its environment

Going for days without nutrient requirements….

What makes a flower cry?

Is it depending on people for their waters

Whether in a pot, parking lot or shady spot

Just to be plucked and given to daughters

Who think of the beauty process for naught….

What makes a flower cry?

Is it going day to day living dry

When the respite of a few drops are so closely by

But no one cares until it withers and starts to die

Then caring no longer an afterthought but an urgent lie….

None of these things make a flower cry. It endures intensity and beautifies. But if I ever see a flower shed tears, there’s one thing I know:

That flower will use its tears to continue to grow.
