Three Flowers: NaPoWriMo Day 2

A boy stood with three flowers in his hand,
A rose, a daffodil, a sunflower and,
All he wanted was some water for them,
The boy that stood with three flowers in his hand.

A boy now stood with two flowers and some dust,
A daffodil, a sunflower and hands full of rust,
And all he wanted was some water for them,
The boy that stood with two flowers and some dust.

A boy now stood with a flower and a mystery,
A withering sunflower and an enigmatic history,
All he wanted was some water for it,
The boy that stood with a flower and a mystery.

A boy now stood crying the rain,
Empty hands and efforts of vain,
All he wanted was some water, now it was there,
Yet the boy stood crying in the rain.

This poem is a bit deceptive, so I’m gonna explain a bit of it. Rose, daffodil, and sunflower respectively represent the three emotions of love, friendship and trust. Water is a symbol of need for loyalty on others’ part. So, the poem actually shows how constant betrayals render one emotionless and how there is no meaning of apologies when one’s emotions are already dead.
