Sitting Among Flowers 1


As I sit among the flowerbed
Surrounded by flowers and weeds
Waiting for my breakthrough
As I feel that warm gentle breeze

Waiting on my moment
The moment I waited on for far too long
To do what the flowers do
And open up on my own

No longer do I wish to be a hermit in a shell
No longer do I desire to hold in the real me
I have to blossom into who I am
And who I am destined to be

As I sit among the flowerbed
There is so much to learn and see
I wish to be like a flower
And open up while others sleep

Sitting among the flowerbed
Surrounded by flowers and weeds
I think of what I want to say to you
I think of how I wish I could be

To open up and express myself
Let the beauty within me free
I have to stop closing myself off
I have to not be afraid to show the real me

“Flowers are beautiful, but their true beauty is revealed when they finally open up…………Never be afraid to show the real you to others….” – Monica Renata
