Flower

They said she was a flower.

So she grew and grew. She grew from all they knew and never learned herself.

They said reach for the sun.

So she reached and reached. She stretched past what anyone had known.

And when she had grown too tall.

They told her to fall.

So she fell and fell, but could not fall.

She realized she wasn’t a flower at all.

  3. It’s damn hard being a woman sometimes. The world wants you to be strong, but not too strong. I think this poem captures that sentiment really well. Love it! And love that this came from a male writer! There’s not too many guys out there that get it as well as you seem to 🙂
