First Blossom

This poem can be an inspiration to be different in many areas of life, but I wrote it specifically as an encouragement to be different in the area of finding a mate / romance. Waiting on God is not easy in today's society, where the norm is to give yourself away far before the right time, but many blessings will blossom when we dare to walk in faith!

First Blossom

To be the first blossom on a rosebush
Isn’t easy,
To break the traditions of the buds,
Is a lonely path to tread;
To dare to be different
Will often bring tears to the eyes—

But all who see the lonely blossom
Are filled with delight;
And soon, the sighs of joy
Wake up the sleeping buds—
They follow in her steps,
And open to the world,
Composing a dazzling harmony
That takes the breath away
Of any strolling by—

All because a lonely blossom
Dared to be different…

That's a really neat way of looking it it. I hadn't though of that before. I like the way you use a concept or image to express things. I'm a visual person, so I think that's really cool that I'm able to picture the poem in my head as I read it.

That is one of my favorite things about poetry, too.
I'm glad this poem was a blessing to you!
