Beautiful Tyranny

Roadside petals bloomed with glory

Amidst the dust and tyranny,

Swallowing harshness of each driving by

Yet smiling gaily for the needy.

 

Solitary, standing tall,

Hidden in façade, a melancholic beauty.

My instinctive pity provoked me

To neither pluck nor abandon.

 

I watered it and left it on its quest,

To paint a picture with all its colour

For those like me,

Whose life longs for a little beauty.

    To neither pluck nor abandon.” This is my favorite part. This is a simplely lovely and wonderful poem, thanks for sharing.
