Dandelion

Rating: 4.7
I am like a dandelion
Once pretty now ugly
and pieces of me fly away.
Either way i am a weed.
Pretending to be a flower doesn't change that.
I'm not valued or thought highly by florists,
but strangely I've found one that likes me....
Now I'm holding onto my pieces, and growing backwards,
but I don't mind.....
I was a weed,
but a perfect weed,

I have always liked dandelions- I think they're more beautiful than a daisy, or a daffodil- and I love this poem. Thanks Athena :)

I like it very much. It really portrays the feelings of a dandelion I think it symbolizes that anything can be beautiful.

i really like this poem. it explains that in life, you're looking for something. though unsure of what it is, you know how you want to be in the end. it's desperate for attention and i think fitting in. perhaps one day, you will blossom into the beautiful flower inside you. Be Different. Be You. Elizabeth

Yoonoos is my good friend and I like the points he made about your technical merits here. This is a fine poem. For me, The fact that you had a specific purpose was important. The specific meaning is always much harder to do and I confess that I prefer crystal clarity, whereas others may not. I gave it an 8 and a recommendation to other readers to read it. All in all, it is a keeper as they say.
