Late Bloomer

Personal (Hope)

She’s a blossom unopened;
her petals stay sealed closed
because she doesn’t think
the world wants to see her bloom.

But inside she’s withering,
waiting for the right moment
to show off her budding flower
but losing confidence.

But the day when the sun calls her
and she finally opens up,
all her beauty will be displayed
leaving the world in awe.

She just doesn’t know
how breathtaking she is
on the inside.

That was a beautiful

That was a beautiful write..
Oh where is she.. I want to see her flower..

"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.

The poet sees, eventually the flower will believe . . . so many women doubt and wait to contribute, to make the world better and more beautiful ...allets
