First piece in a long time. Sorry it's bad.
The roadside flower
Is it blooming for somebodyís sake?
It isnít noticed by the people passing byÖ
Burnt under the sun
Exposed to the rain
Somedayís dream is being blown by the wind
Always in isolation
Without words for
The indifferent walls
It canít even endure
But somehow it is blown by the wind.
A nameless star
Is it shining for somebodyís sake?
Forgotten in a corner of the night sky
The astonishing darkness,
That light for sure is the ticket to the future
Turning my back
As I struggle,
Iím stretching that hand
For somebody's sake.
Does my mind not matter?
Just my hope is at stake.

Everything just is; there need not be any reason. The way we are is the result of the way everything else is. The way we are allows everything else to be the way they are.
There is so much to be learned from beings of nature, as they are skilled in the art of sincerity, openness, and maintaining a true presence. Cosmic insignificance is common to all beings - but simply by being present, exactly as we are, we can touch the seeds of healing and inspiration in other individuals without our knowledge. The same goes for ourselves; we have all the potential to heal right within us - the challenging part is to get back in touch with it.
Thank you for sharing.
