Tangled Vines - Contest

When we weave life's garden
We plant  Honesty to teach us whats right
Lilly of the valley, to remind us, 
no matter how small, we matter
The Rose  to teach us love
The proud Daffodil that says 
who you are is important
The Honeysuckle to bring the scent
of happiness into our lives

The Trees that remind us how
insignificant we can look yet
shelter us from sun and rain
the tears and hopes.
Always spreading out to protect us
The actual Tangled Vine is a deadly act,
huge thorns to hold its victim
secreting an aesthetic to paralyze its prey
sucking away life's blood.

People can be like this in a controlling way
luckily, most families, override this
bringing up their children to be free thinkers
with the ability to choose.
Life is like a tangled vine.
Sometimes suffocating
when you want to be free,
needed to hold you up
when  life hurts.

    Seren, Love how you included the good in the garden before introducing the vines as a negative!

    so you don't like Tom Cruise's personality? How do you know his real personality? I don't think we can depend solely on the tabloids.

    Seren, I really liked how you made this poem symbolic. I would like to see even more said about the vines. I think if you added just a few more lines about vines, we could guess from the poem that they were the family and friends of the poem. So creative!
