A purple flower
Suddenly, you woke up and realized it was all just a dream. But it was like actually real and alive. You could even still smell the pungent scent brushing through your nostrils like you couldn't smell anything else except only that. You started to worry if there's something wrong with yourself but insists on being just fine and okay. You called someone on the phone and nobody there on the other line to pick it up.You text and the message sending failed. A purple flower is just a purple flower until you learn to see how it's beauty comes to life, but you just can't get through it.
Life could be sometimes like that. You feel like you're isolated from the rest of the world. You feel like you're being abandoned and that no one else just cared. You feel like there's something wrong with yourself or the world. You feel like you're all alone except for that purple flower that's been there for you letting you feel its presence in your every move; letting you know it exists.
A purple flower is just a purple flower until you learn to see how its beauty comes to life. When the whole of the world turns its back on you, it's there that you can lean on. It could be just one of those ordinary things you have ignored, forgotten, or never given attention with. Or perhaps someone who really cares for you--a true friend, a loved one, or even a total stranger--and one that brings you hope and inspiration.
But until you learn to see how its beauty comes to life, only then you will know that the purple flower is a life-giving thing keeping you alive.
