The face in the mirror

I was a lonely flower whose petals were withered, whose colours were faded and whose sweet nectar was slurped by the deadly demon of diffidence. Then the face in the mirror said to me, "You are worthy". I took to refill the parched springs of nectar. Slowly, butterflies came to quench their thirst with my nectar. In return, they gifted me my lost colours. I'm not lonely anymore.

There are many who lack the confidence needed to change their lonely lives. Just one bad relationship might prevent a person from moving forward after it's ended. I love the thought of butterflies restoring a persons lost "colours." Maybe one day I'll learn how to do this. Wonderful poem, Swetha! Thanks for sharing, Carolyn

Bad relationship, as you said, leads to chaos in life. A person loses self-love, self-confidence and lacks motivation to move forward in life. However, there are many other things that affect the positivity in lives. Thanks a lot for your lovely words Carolyn.
