I didn't want to detract from your thread but your poem inspired me:

I applaud
Every flower
From the seed
To death.
For it is not the flower
That decides whether or not
It will bloom- no
That lies, entirely
Out of her power.
Yet look at some flowers
They lord their beauty
And proclaim themselves
Triumphant- as if it were they
Who had decided to bloom
Who had decided their dress.
It is not the bloomed I look to
It is not the well dressed
It is the ones who are struggling
The ones who know death-
It is these who know humility.
See them yearn, see them pray-
See them get no amswer, and turn away.
Little do they know-
In the realm of eternal life
It is they who will be dressed in splendor.

Blessed are the meek.
Respect for the one who stops to lend them a hand, and give them honor.
