“Flower”

There, there like a gleaming bright flower amid a forest of green 
undisturbed and standing 
stoic and tall, 
rarest of all ,
fervent and blessed
challenging the the rest
to be different
to be bold
despite and because 
Nature is guiding 
the colors around you,
and you weren’t designed 
to hide or to blend,
but instead you are there,
there like a gleaming bright flower coaxing the others to lean, 
rise and be different
rise and be you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
