I wish to be a flower,
Said the scribe to the tower,
And to it he replied,
Isn't your writing rather fine?
Yes my writing carries on,
Past the night and well into dawn,
But how it'd be to be a flower,
Never pick up a pen,
Never have to unveil my power,
STOP! Bellowed the tower,
Confused, the scribe cowered,
Relaxing he spoke on,
You are an idiot writer, you are young,
Do you not see the monstrosity in me?
Flowers are put where others believe,
They need to live, where they get to be,
They have not a voice,
They switch from being girls to boys,
They never move-
The beating heat, being rained on at night,
In any direction with any wind, they go,
They're trampled on, picked apart,
Die with no goal,
So speak not again scribe, only write,
For what comes out of your mouth isn't as wise as your mind.
Author's Notes: When I began writing this in my poetry book it reminded me of a Japanese story meant to teach morals and lessons. Had you not recognized, this poem of mine was to incorporate and stress the line from the Rede that says "Speak Ye little, listen much." Definitley a lesson.
