What is Life? Flower or Flame?

Updated on October 20, 2012

Sometimes life seems as delicate as a flower and sometimes you can see that life is as strong as a flame.

Lives are Like Flowers

All lives are like flowers.

Some are cut short before they can bloom.

Some last long into the winter months.

With the defiance and rage of a wild fire,

They challenge Mother Nature to try and beat them down.

Lives are Flames

All lives are flames.

They glow dimly and burn warm

until the wind comes.

Some bow to the wind and give in,

Becoming nothing more than cold embers.

Some take in the wind and rage on,

Becoming the heated fury that lights the way.

      I really enjoyed this, your analogy of fire and nature as life symbols was strong and made your point very well
