A mere flower

As I look up to the skies,

I see beautiful birds and sigh;

For I can’t fly.


As I look around me,

I see animals dashing and sigh;

for I can’t run.


I feel ,to be still is boring.

with great sorrow ,

I turn to my creator;

“why couldn’t you give me wings?

why couldn’t you give me feet?

I wanna fly….

I wanna run….”

I complained to him….


Then one fine day

He tells me:

“They may have wings,

Or they may have feet…

But they don’t bloom

As you do……


The fragrance that seduces men

Belongs to you and only you…….

The colours of the rainbow

That you proudly possess,they don’t…”


To this I have no reply;

I’ve been humbled…

And I thank him for making me accept myself

As what I am – A mere flower.
