Star Seed: River_ Manifesting Destiny

Orchidaceae

What is love but an ordinary thing?

What are we, if not extraordinary beings,

Following the river upstream,

Further proving we need not a destination,

But merely something to believe.

But this river,

Where does it lead?

Yes, we all have similar desires,

But we did not inquire to become,

For that is so becoming.

The river must lead to what we are becoming.

Yet, some choose to stop,

Smell the flowers, and gaze.

Remaining within the forest,

Never seeking.

We should not blame curiosity,

Just as we should not dwell on mystery.

It will recapture those-

whom have gone astray,

lost in hopeful matrimonies.

But the orchids…

The orchids are somewhat fascinating

Once submerged in heavy rain.

Like us, they become more beautiful

After the struggle.

We are to be juvenal until it is cliché,

And worrisome until we find absolution.

Only yearning retribution

When it is our souls that have been tampered with.

Yet the soaring of a thousand departing birds,

Does nothing to our will.

What is love but an ordinary thing?

What are we, if not extraordinary beings,

Following our own individual paths within,

For, we are all destined to make it to the end.
