They wish to be white rather than green

White lilies and green grass.

One common and plain,

Another rare as broken glass.

One of them with a secret dream,

A desire to be purer and better,

To be white rather than green.

The other with vanity and pride.

Who would never know the pain

Of being brushed to the side.

The grass is covered in gravel.

But everyone steps aside in awe

While watching the flower unravel.
