Life is like a sunflower there are days she stands up and is beautiful staring at the sun and ready to conquer the world.
Then there are the days she starts falling over, her stalk weakens, it bends over at the neck and she looks at the ground.
The flower shrivels up and turns brown and dies on the stalk her beauty is gone. She has lost her luster and her color and all she has left are her seeds.
Those seeds feed the birds and other wildlife and make new flowers. The sunflower never really dies her beauty lives on with each new flower that comes up.
