I always wanted, desperately to be an early bloomer.
I wanted to walk into a room and have all the eyes on me.
I wanted to be that girl, with the good this and great that.
Even better, I wanted to be the first red rose
or the whole damn bouquet.
These days, I’m very inconspicuous. More like unnoticeable.
I don’t move anyone when I walk into a room.
No eyes on me.
I’m that girl with the good this and great that though many may not know.
And it’s okay.
I’m a flower.
And one day, I’m gonna bloom.
In fact, I am blooming.
However slow or fast it might be.
This is just the beginning.
I’m going to be the whole damn rose garden.
