My Friend (January Contest 2017, Honorable Mention)

Vy Nguyen

To my friend who believes that she is the same tiny flower from many years past—

My friend is like a pretty flower
Not just any pretty flower though…
She’s a special one.
Except… She doesn’t realize that yet.

To her, herself, she thinks she’s just any other ordinary flower. One that can’t be distinguished amongst the billions of flowers in the garden.

But, you see… My friend is quite silly—Because she forgot one thing…
She is a special flower. She’s the one that made the garden exist in the first place. I would know, because I saw her grow. And that has made all the difference to me.

And did you know? This special, pretty flower has a name.
Her name is…..
Yes she’s a person, a wonderful person.
And a flower by any other name is just as sweet
