The sad flower

By Tama Perlman, 9 / February 14, 1983



Encino, California

One day there was a flower who could not stand up. She was sad because she had started to wilt. She had been stepped on many times by people and that also made her unhappy. No one wanted to take care of her. All she needed was a little watering and a chance to grow. After two gloomy days it started to rain and the people that were once outside weren't there anymore. She had a chance to get stronger and get the food she needed. When the sun came out, she was standing so tall and in full bloom. When the people did come out, no one stepped on her. She was too beautiful to be stepped on. She wasn't sad anymore.
