evolution_of_stephanie I was a daisy... I've always been a daisy...never a rose, or a hibiscus or something exotic and beautiful. I was something that grew on the medians of highways...that everyone passed, and in abandoned backyards, that no one came to pick. I was not rare, or precious or amazing. Until he showed up... until he held the mirror to my petals to show me my own rareness, until he loved me more than a magnolia or a tulip. He put my roots in his backyard, and gave me soil and water and allowed them to grow. He talked to me and sat by me and made sure I always faced the sunlight. He allowed me to grow at my own pace and never rushed my progression. It was only when he left that I bloomed... what a tragedy that he can't take in the beauty of what he cultivated, because I was too stubborn... I took too long... I wilted a few times... and wouldn't recognize my own potential... and selfishly would not bloom for him. I hope he'll see what he made one day, that he'll pass me on a highway, or growing from a cracked in the sidewalk and realize he made something so beautiful...so resilient... so beautifully simple... and smile.
