Of All Flowers

OF ALL FLOWERS – DE TOUTES LES FLEURS – KAIKISTA KUKISTA

Of all the flowers one
is like an unpolished diamond

Only I feel the roots of my body
I grow and bloom through life

My treasure is mine
My nature is fine

My favourite colour is protected
Behind my eyes there is more

We humans are physically and mentally as different from each other as all the flowers that grow around us. Still we are haunted by a need to classify each other into only two categories when it comes to body and gender. Thereby we end up dividing essential human characteristics into two groups, and the individual cannot flourish as a whole. The real gender dwells inside a person and no one but themself can determine it. With elements of nature, I try to unpack our society’s unnatural concept of gender. May all bodies bloom, because each of them in its uniqueness is the most beautiful.
