The Flower Of Your Heart

Rating: 4.8

I brought a flower to him.
The wise old man shook his head.
Child, he said
I made the trees and the flowers;
I made the sun that gives warmth,
I made the rains that water the trees
That give flowers and fruits.
These I have given to you,
And you bring them back to me?
Give me something that I do not have,
That I cannot create myself:
Your love, your faith, your sincerity.
I want the flowers of your heart.
These I do not have.
On these I live.
For these I come again and again
Knocking at your door like a mendicant
Accepting tortures and insults
And welcoming the crown of thorns.
For these in my lone and scented
Places I cry in silence.

I see what you mean. In my understanding when we give our will to God, that is what we should do, because anyway that happens what has to happen if we gripe or not, only if we are against something, we suffer. If we go along with ease., we are happy forever.
