\"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.\" - e.e. cummings

sweet magnolia
do you know your worth?
delicate yet strong
gently you touch our lives
embracing us in pure love
devoid of hatred



you may think you fall
or falter now and again
but you do so with grace


flowing with nature

your aura
so radiant
kind enough to charm ours
with its affection

you think
you observe

hiding your nobility
you watch the others dance
while you glow in silence

The author's comments:
This poem goes with a set of two, written as an assignment for AP english. The objectives set by myself and my classmates was to write two poems, using the same metaphor- one revering someone, and another admiring- at least one had to be about someone in the class. This one is about a dear friend of mine and is meant to be the one in reverence.
