Daisy or Rose?

Okay, there’s this poem I used to like:


“and if you don’t

like me, as I do you;

I understand.

because who would

really choose a daisy, in a field

of roses?”


A bit sad, isn’t it? That the writer wouldn’t even pick herself because she’s a daisy in a field of roses and roses are prettier than daisies.

Wait. Who said roses are prettier than daisies? Why are they prettier? What makes them prettier? Their color? Their texture? The way they blossom? Who the heck said a rose is prettier than a daisy?

Guess what?

I would choose the daisy.

I would choose the daisy just because it stands out.

It’s different.

Its difference makes it beautiful and makes it stand out.

It’s unique.

A daisy could never be a rose and that’s a beautiful thing!

It also reminds me of a sunflower and that’s another favorite of mine because it always makes me happy.

Which would you choose?

Would you choose a rose just because it’s beautiful, or would you choose a daisy because it’s got personality and it shines and illuminates the field with it’s contrasting difference opposing a rose.
