Flower Power ~ A Poem

Flower Power

If I am not your cup of tea,
What makes you think that bothers me?

A jasmine flower would not aspire
To be a snowdrop or a briar.

Yet every flower finds its bee.
It doesn't have to try, you see.

Its perfect self is all it is.
My message to you, dear, is this:

I will not change to match your mood
And so, not wishing to be rude,

Please fly away and find your flower:
Shading mine won't dim its power.
