“A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.”
G.K. Chesterton

"And you, you ridiculous people, you expect me to help you."
Denis Johnson

A withered flower
Frowns down upon the earth,
Forever cursed
To die and decay.

Until the rain showers down,
The light from above
Enveloping those
Who have let their souls perish.

A welcoming hand
Caresses the tender flower and
Within his healing hand,
He restores all.

The strong boughs
Of a weak root
Is restored
To its maturity.

The bright petals
Of the once forgotten bloomer
The restoration
Of youthful roots left to die.

Only one
Just one
Cared and loved it.

The author's comments:

So many people in the world go through difficulties in their life that sometimes may seem just too much for themselves to bear. However, when all hope fails, there will ALWAYS be just that one person that will actually help bear the weight right alongside with you.
