I bought a pot and seeds and soil and put them all together. I nurtured and took great care of the mix. As the days passed by, my lovely plant kept on growing till it became bigger than the pot she was in. At the same time, the raw-green of her leaves faded into lifeless yellow. She was sad. I couldn’t do anything about it. No matter how much I watered her, whispered beautiful words to her or decorated her pot with pink stones, the plant continued to turn amber. To my shame, I lost hope and abandoned it.
One day, I came back to check on her, thinking that I should give it another try. Maybe this time my efforts to bring her back to life will be successful. I took a glance at my old baby and saw it. Tall, green and… happy.
That’s when I realized that happiness comes from within and that the world can’t help you if you don’t let them do it.
Also, yellow can sometimes be the saddest colour, whilst green will always be pure, healthy and powerful.
Therefore, I am terribly sorry Vincent, but this time we go on separate ways.
