Forever Flowers

I saw a flower today and it reminded me of you
Not only due to its aesthetic appeal, but
Because like you, despite living a life
Of being battered, bruised and passed by
It still manages to exemplify
The essence of immaculate beauty

Scars caused by the harshness of the world, yet
Managing to still hold enough of the sun within
While developing the strength to grow against the wind,
Instead of becoming a casualty of this world’s sin
Its petals still find a way to radiate
With a vibrance normally reserved only for the stars

And such is the image of you…
For you alone have developed a level of mastery
In the ability to conceal those wounds internally,
And although you bear the scars emotionally,
Within the worst of your reality you’ve captured beauty,
And on the surface you exemplify beautiful imperfection

And though it may seem as if below those petals
Your heart and soul are often on the verge of a loss
Know that within that place where your internal conflict lives,
Enough of your pure essence still exists
The truest luminescence through any abyss
And you will radiate as beautiful as the most vibrant of flowers.
