Why, do we continue watering flowers we do not intend to grow?
My belief is that secretly, we hope they will
Problem is, most of us will never admit it.
Not because we don't realize, not because we don't want to, not even because we are afraid of the outcomes.
Instead, what we do fear is the possibility of having to admit to ourselves we're standing in a garden and all of its flowers have withered.
or maybe even worse;one that is empty
A garden can be filled with flowers all the same
and one be overwhelmed by common color.
Roses can stand beautiful and tall as models on a high fashion runway and suddenly you realize all you never knew you wanted is the one small, white tulip in the corner.
We fear conceiving or entertaining the thought one might desire nothing more than to witness the blooming of a flower never intended to be grown.
So, the question remains....
Why do we continue watering flowers we do not intend to grow???
