The Young Flowers - Poem by yewande adedokun

A growth in the beauty of the sun
Little do they know how it can burn
Towards its direction they turn

Maybe it is the warmth it gives to the soul
Maybe it is the attraction of colour that made it so
Cannot say for certain why the sun takes the hold

They wait for the sunrise each morning
Their heart in its jive they sing
Cannot tell the wrong it brings
Cannot see the fire and its steams

But the older ones prays for the rain
They dream for the clouds to gather again
And when it finally rains, their heart sings its praise
There their heart finds its warmth and satisfaction like an aura binding in chains.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is for my 14-year-old friend that thought she has a feeling in her mind to die for. but little does she know that it is not real yet, she has to understand the words of things she feels.I just hope she reads this.
