The Story of my Flower

Born a lovely flower

Watered with fresh water during rainy seasons

Sprinkled with just enough during the droughts

The flower lived to blossom

With scented petals and green leaves

in a pot so large to take all it could bear.

One sunny day

the pot with the flower was shifted

shifted to a completely new location

where it was deprived of the sunlight

and the abundance of water.

Necessary it was

A new start in a life supposedly so complete.

Time went by

Nevertheless, the flower continued blooming

The petals now larger

The scent even more appealing

The flower survived even without the bare necessities.

The now sensitive flower

Soon attracted the eyes of predators

A simple glance to start with

Then became a soft touch

Followed by multiples of rough care.

Soon the flower started to lose its shape and form

Being given insufficient supply of water

Inappropriate fertilizers

And most of all the wrong attention.

At last it withered

After long hours of torture

Long days of loneliness

and years of abundance

it turned yellow, then brown

Finally, what remained was just a lifeless stem

standing in an old dirty pot.
