wander.

the dying flower


the dying flower

told the girl

to halt her tears

even as its own petals

rained down around

its bowed stem

 

the dying flower

told the girl

that there is majesty to be found

in beautiful things struggling

that there is dignity to be found

in beautiful things enduring

that there is glory to be found

in beautiful things ending

 

the dying flower

told the girl

that just because a story is sad

does not mean it is not needed

that just because a story is sad

does not mean it is not good

that just because a story is sad

does not mean it is not worthy

of being told

 

the dying flower

told the girl

to tell you

its story


musings inspired by A Story I Needed To Tell


good

speak again
