This is a poem about flowers, but can be interpreted however you like!

I was blue.
A little flower somewhere in the woods.
I was pretty.
But not like you.
As you were tall and bright and colourful.
I was small.
But everybody loved you and your ways.
You all liked me.
But not enough.
As I was boring and my colours dull.
You stood out.
And the people walked past and said 'that's nice'
when they saw me.
Then they saw you.
And I was never picked by passers-by.
But you were.
Because you were prettier and taller.
And I was the
one left behind.

Very nice.My interpretation of the poem is people really only notice the colorful,shiny ,picturesque people not the one color,semi-plain people.
