A flower grows until it blossoms,

reaching the peak of its

full bloom and beauty.

After the flower reaches its peak

of full bloom and beauty,

it begins to fade and wilt away,

until there is nothing left

but leaves on a stem.

I never want to quite reach my full bloom and beauty,

because then I would begin to fade and wilt away,

and I don’t want to completely fade and wilt away.

Externally, my bloom has begun the process of

fading and wilting to some degree,

but internally I am still

growing,

blooming,

and blossoming.

I have not yet

reached the peak of my

full bloom and beauty

of the person I am still becoming.

Internally, I never want

to fade and wilt

completely away,

turning and leaving my

mind and thoughts,

and heart and soul

into only leaves on a stem.

I want to continuously

grow, bloom and blossom

here on earth,

and later in heaven,

forever and always.
