Give you a flower.

by hangonz92

For you.

A flower.

Take it.

Do with it what you will.

Drop it to the ground.

Let it fall and slowly brown.

Or rip it apart

petal by petal.

Split the stem.

Discover and destroy every layer

if that is truly what you wish.

The flower is yours.

But if you choose to give it water,

help it live and grow,

show it compassion,

we can share it.

Watch it strive together.

And if it should wither and wilt,

let it go with dignity.

Give it the death it’s life deserved.

And let us part as friends.

Happy in knowing it lived at all.
