Vanity is good

Better than ever

That is why

Narcissus

becomes a flower

He loves himself

He was said

to be really handsome

And his story

is the same,

utterly awesome

He fell for

his own image

that reflected

in a pool of water

And it made him

Narcissus the flower

of December

Beautiful enough

to tempt

Demeter's daughter

on her way to Hades

The young hunter

turned a flower

Blossoming in

the month of December

If he weren't him,

not loving his self

Then, we'll have

no such chance

to see the Narcissus

sway and dance

to the cold breeze

of the twelveth one


The author's comments:

-Why did you write this poem???

1)Because my birth flower is Narcissus(I'm not completely onto birth flowers and so, in case you thought so...)

2)Because I'm really in on Greek Mythology...

3)Because day by day, I become proud of myself(in a good way though) because many just break my heart but I, I conquer it all...That's something that I take pride for...

4)Because after all these days, I've learnt to love myself and be myself for good... (I mean, I like myself...But, I've been nervous on what others might think of my personality and character and that too, due to how most of my acquaintances just reject me for who I am and they just marginalise me...But, I am ME, and no one can change that, right???)

@Afra, they Marginalize u? Seriously! U r so talented. Okay, maybe they are just jealous. Forget them, chica.
Well, i have 2 say the same thing @CaliFranceGurl648 said, maybe we might have passed by as strangers. Because you sorta read our family, as my Mom's name is Narcissa, sorta named after the flower narcissus because its her birthflower too. Her birthday is on, Dec 18, 1978.
Anyway, your perspective is really different in this poem. You showed us a different side of the story of Narcissus. Nice as always!

@Afra, Oh My God, I think we might have passed by as strangers (I dont know how though) because you written about my favourite flower in the whole wide world, Narcissus, and it feels like I know you and youve read my mind. Love the poem so much especially the talk of narcissus.
Btw, i love ur profile pic. <3
