images (2)

Beheaded flower in the hands of an imaginary child
Plucked away from the umbilicus of life
Now the bond has broken,
And the dream has torn apart.

Since then, there were no beds of flower
Except clusters of pain and sufferings
You looked at the stars in cold and desperation
Forced to face the sun in shame and humiliation

A silent song echoed in the dry wind
Hands of an amateur gardener penetrated dry earth
Let the rain come and wash away
Wash away the pain and suffering of yesteryears

No matter whether you are a weed or a seed
Keep the fight on until the weather is fine
The deeper you root that tender you flower
You and I are the rings in a chain, the chains in the divine ritual of life

So keep the hopes of bearing flowers someday
When justice dies, blossom into a thousand flowers
And spread the fragrance of hope for grieving
There you change this place to a land of wonders.

    “you are a shrub rooted into the wastelands of life” very powerful words! I like the metaphors you’ve used to describe the idea that we are all flowers — yet we will leave behind our fragrance! Yes, we will and do! Beautiful writing.

    the bond has broken
    the bond has been broken

    “Shades despair and shades of hope
    I am not sure whether your ending was optimistic ( I didn’t fully understand)
    A much maturer version this time.
    Keep working hard..”
