Why can’t a flower be a flower

If it’s too beautiful it must be plucked

If it’s to shy, it will never be acknowledged 

If it has too many thorns it must be mutilated 

Why do we never leave the flower alone

Its life is short anyway 

Maybe it wants its petals to join in dance with the wind 

Maybe it just wants its leaves to be adorned by the morning dew 

Maybe it just wants to die, happily in the field 

Why can’t a flower 

just be a flower

    Nature is never left alone! What is more beautiful a flower blowing in the wind or rigid in a vase?

      And how we treat nature is a reflection of how we treat each other. Instead of taking the time to appreciate and understand one another as humans we cut each other down, displace, manipulate and control each other.
