it can be so easy to get caught up in every little thing that happens around us.
the relationships made and the future relationships to be made can seem so far and distant...so long distance
the person who lives down the road
the person who works on the floor above you
the person who you share a quick glance of recognition with as you walk by them
sometimes you have no idea who the person is, but you know you've seen them before
sometimes you know who the person is, but you know they don't know who you are
sometimes you both know who the other is, but yet neither of you know that the other knows
sometimes you both know each other, but yet you still pass by without recognition of the other
you're too caught up in you
what brings you forth from your thorns, flower? why do you open up to the world around you and display your beauty?
you humble yourself and reach out with color and sacrifice, and you do so not from some obligation to rule
you are free
you reach out to those coiled in distress, you create a lasting connection, an aroma that is worth remembering
you bring forth a relationship that is not ashamed, not distracted
it's in love and appreciation for another that you recognize the beauty of their color and their hue
