like a flower

"like a flower"
we always take what we see
forgetting there is so much more
to the world
that cannot be seen,
like a seed to a flower,
beauty forever captured inside
to sprout and yet
perhaps it was never meant to be,
we forget the beauties
that exist beyond
the silvery veil
there where all things we remember to find
lay in wait,
but alas
we must always never forget
to question our own minds
and find that which the world
would hide for itself.
-Armando Torres
