Floral motifs are nearly always perfect. Black lips as if kissed by darkness and death are perfect too. When things become too bright you need to shade your eyes or they will burn. Burn your enemies, ignite the fire in you to reach your goals. But at the end of it all you need hope to survive, not end up destructed in a pile of burnt bricks and rubble. Hope and faith and perhaps love.
❝I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again...❞
Katniss, "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins
