a poem

#1
i'm not sure i should put it here... but anyway... i made a poem... just wanted to share.
I make my hurried way across the street
Past blurring cars and through the multitude
Of men with an uncaring attitude
The potholed pavement hot against my feet

The muted chaos all around is daunting
No face to see that’s not with indignation
I struggle to deny this revelation
Yet know inside I’m guilty of accusing

Immediately, I leave the thought unminded
No point in feeling hopeless and dejected
Yet I cannot help being disappointed
In once a nation strong and undivided

I quickly run toward the nearby park
Where I can clear my head from thoughts so grim
Where patterned stepping stones lie still and prim
And flora saturate my heart so stark

Among the blooming hyacinths and roses
A standout lily catches my attention
Surrounded by both beauty and commotion
Intoxicating in nostalgic doses

Quite captivating is its sweet aroma
Enthralling is its elegance and splendor
Its leaves they animate with guided vigor
The cool breeze wafting forth profound charisma

It strikes me that a single tender bud
Could make so great a change of mood in me
Gone now are all the thoughts of anarchy
Replaced by peacefulness that cools my blood

I take a closer look and see more clearly
The patterned veins that creep across the petals
The silky spider webs that hang like medals
The tiny cuts and little tears aplenty

Yet past the minute flaws there’s something greater
A sentiment transcending plain attraction
I get a sudden pang of deep emotion
For something rarely noticed as a flower

I lightly give the modest bloom a kiss
And lo, a splendid miracle behold!
In majesty its marvels all unfold
It radiates relentless, endless bliss

Before my eyes I see it grow more gorgeous
From simple prominence to grand perfection
Abandoning the immature rendition
Emerging stalwart, disciplined, tenacious

In love and witty passion I leave carefree
A lightened heart and joyous soul I carry
I only pray it does not overwhelm me
Indulgent how that lovely scarlet lily
