This is my first poem on this blog. As a young child I wrote a lot of poetry, a lot! And yes, somewhere along the way I got lost and taught myself to not write poetry until I learnt to listen to my creative voice. I had written this a few years back and this stayed in my folder on a word doc until a few minutes back while I was cleaning my folders.
I feel that some of the buds inside me have blossomed and the journey has been beautiful with its joys, tears, struggles and anxieties. Here’s my love for you and hope each of you blossom at the time and place that is right for you. .
Desire to Blossom
Somewhere deep inside
There is a flower bud, trying hard to blossom
To express itself and share its fragrance,
To inspire and heal
To reach its fullness and vigor
Yet there is struggle, anxiety & uncertainty
The bud isn’t sure if the time is right
Whether it should blossom today or wait for the next spring
To keep growing slowly and be full grown by spring
Or simply blossom at its full pace today
Find another garden or make peace with the one it has
That’s when the bud needs love, acceptance & trust
And that it can find its own way. Until then…
Feed it, water it, and give it the sunshine it needs
Allow it to explore and reflect until it finds it right home
Nurture it, nourish it and love it for its uncertainty
One day it will blossom, One day it sure will blossom.
