When all the petals have fallen,
a lonely carpel on a stem, is
finally given its moment to shine.
Its confidence grows dim and afraid.
The petals, so bright, welcome the world
and glow with confidence.
Her outgoing nature is a wonderful sight,
Never failing to bring a smile to someone's face.
But on the inside, she shrinks and retreats in vulnerability.
A little more shy, her confidence is taken away.
Carpel and girl, the same.
