Succulent

Simple uniformity
With chlorophyll abundant
Definition clear
With H2O fill

Succulent by name
Enabling warrior survival
In the most desolate
Arid of terrains

Human so similar
Designed to perfection
Multiple organ chambers
Renewing survival each day

Consciousness the difference
Given privy to the play
I behold the succulent
For giving me the way

Recognizing her attributes
I look into myself
Finding what sustains me
Our bond is now complete

Glory to our creator
As magic he did spill
For splendors both created
As succulent and me

Uniqueness

 

To be so awkward
Yet accepted as graceful,
Lessons of the giraffe.

To flutter inattentive
Yet accepted as a delicate beauty,
Lessons of the butterfly.

To create incessant noise
Yet accepted as the warning buzz,
Lessons of the bumblebee.

To thunderously roar
Yet accepted as commanding,
Lessons of the lion.

Do you know how to accept your weakness
Focus on your strength
Turn your quirkiness into an attribute?

Put down the yardstick
Measure no more,
Uniqueness cannot be compared.

Seek your true features
See your real image
Be the student of your self.
