If I Were a Flower
A flower signifies a lot in nature. It is associated with life and beauty. A rose flower, for instance, is not only beautiful and attractive hence irresistible but it also has a fragrance that spreads to every part where the flower grows. If I were a flower, my life would be complete as described in this paper.
If I were a flower, I would definitely pat myself on the back every single day, knowing that I’m one of the most beautiful, valued plants on the earth. I would wake up each day jumping up and down with excitement, awaiting the next person eager to come and see or pick me. As people come to see me every day, I would let out my emotion flow freely, and although man lacks the ability to recognize the emotion of a flower, I could be excited each day of my life, recognizing the fact that my beauty attracts many, including envious flower neighbors. As humans come to touch and praise me, I would take their praise for a mirror reflection, as I will not have the ability to see myself. When one says, “This flower is so beautiful,” I would thank them sincerely despite human inability to hear the voices of plants.
The need to associate with trees, other flower varieties plus various species of plants would cause me to find a way of communicating with them. I would greet my neighbors every day, and chat away with them, notifying them of the extent to which beauty makes all plants worthwhile and how plants are a key part of the human life. Educating my neighbors regarding the need to care for ourselves, as well as our role as plants in the completion of the ecosystem will take preeminence over all else.
Being a flower, I would not be jealous when humans choose to see other flowers. As beauty is a fully packaged commodity in itself, worry and fear of domination by other flowers could be the last thing on my mind! Knowing that I am naturally beautiful, no need for jealousy could possibly exist within me. To beautify myself even more, I could utilize day and night effectively. During the day time, I would stand above all other flowers then make myself noticed by everyone. During the night, I could give the most fragrance to attract onlookers and passerby.
Someone might pick me then offer me to his lover as a gift. As the lover rejoices while her face beams with smiles, satisfaction along with assurance of love, I would delight too with them both and gratitude could fill me knowing that my greatest role and desire (love) is fulfilled. At times, I would also be picked on special, sunny days then presented in church on key occasions. This could amount to spiritual nourishment in addition to fulfillment of my other purpose and desire: soul nourishment. At other times, I could be picked on such special occasions as weddings and graduations. When being transported towards the ceremony, I would be excited to see the attendants as well as complement the occasion. This could add to my pleasure.
Recognizing how short my life is, I would live each day like a queen, hoping that whoever picks me uses me appreciates my beauty, value, as well as role in nature hence use me for noble causes. A flower is a valuable plant. It is different from all other plants and any day as a flower would fill me with joy, elevate my wellbeing, and give me a chance to complement the various aspects of nature’s ecosystem.
