Yellow flower (poem)

Aspen Bingham, Writer

A pale yellow flower sits silently 

Surrounded by fields of angelic red roses. 

The sun beams perfectly on the roses 

Making them shimmer like glitter. 

 

Everyone’s drawn to the roses 

That sparkle in the sunlight; 

They almost always 

Forget the pale yellow flower.  

 

Although the flower is 

Surrounded by roses, it feels as 

Lonely as ever.    

Hidden behind the roses’ beauty, 

A dull yellow flower sits, 

Wishing nothing but to be noticed.

 

No matter how tall 

The yellow flower grows, 

It’s covered 

By the roses surrounding it.

 

Maybe if the yellow flower shimmered 

Like the roses did, 

It would be noticed too.
