As the flower grows stronger, taller, it learns how to protect itself, still aiming for the sunlight.
As the years go by, more and more walls are built around the flowers core, until one day it is completely closed off from the world surrounding it. It is closed off from the sun.
Everything is now dark. The sunlight isn’t allowed to shine at the flowers core anymore, it is too risky opening up to it.
The flower remains closed for years. Hiding its own beauty and forgetting all about the sunlight. Instead of growing towards the sun the flower turns the other way, hitting the ground.
