.Peonies bloom on peony trees
.A cat doesn't become a chicken
.Tulips are tulips, not roses
?Why can't we realize this true fact
.That to be me is great
.I don't have to be anyone but me
I am blooming as I am in my life, just as
.a peony blooms on a peony tree
Further, a beautiful peony flower does not
.worry about when it will wilt and fall to the ground
It does not compete with the flower next to it
.rather it blooms with its whole self
