"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear."
-Mark Twain

A flower climbing up a wall
Is nothing but a wallflower
Lonely and Forgotten
But forever watching

And ugly kind of pretty
No one seems to notice
Walked by everyday
Forgotten in every way

Knowing secrets
Seeing Lies
The stoic figure standing by
Silent, lost, and shy

Don't forget the wallflowers.

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.
-Salman Rushdie

Great poem, short, sweet, and to the point, it gives a perspective I've never thought of before. Great job! Check out my work if ya want :)

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge, oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege, and everbody needs you. - The Killers

I was a wallflower once, but I've since come out of it... the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower kind of helped with that. Think you could check out my work sometime?
