Wallflower Come Back

Wallflower, why oh why
Into dark corners, do…
You paint yourself shy

Please oh please come back
From becoming the prints on wallpaper
Fading further away to ever black

As a rose hidden well so well
Within the many crowds
Of far off garden dells

Is it the buzz buzzing sound
Of, rumors going…
Swirling about you, round and round

All too often, it’s jealousy’s lies
That push away the beauties inside
And twist the knives of the social butterflies

So please, won’t you come back, again
And show this cruel place
It’s you who shall have that last laugh, my friend 

When your blossoms are unfurled
And God’s own creation is revealed
You then, can show the world that love is for real
