Let Go 2/9/18

When we see a beautiful flower

we pick it

because we want it

 

we think we can keep it

put it in a vase

and the flower will grow strong

 

and happy

 

and in the sunlight

it looks like the flower

belongs in the vase

but it doesn’t

 

we saw something we thought was beautiful

and we thought we loved it

 

but by picking it,

by trying to obtain it,

we ripped it from its world

 

our actions caused the flower

to start dying

no matter how much we watered it

 

and at a certain point

 

we must admit the truth

our faults, killed the precious flower

 

so all we can do

is say to the flower,

 

“I’m sorry.”

 

and plant its seeds back in the ground

so it can regrow, heal itself

 

and possibly another flower will grow

right next to the flower we picked

 

maybe two flowers,

one that looks like the flower we loved

and one different flower,so the flowers

can love each other

 

and we’ve learned our lesson

we won’t pick the flower,

but rather love it from afar

let it grow and shine its own way

 

so smile, I’ll smile, and we can

blow the seeds into the wind

 

and let go
