This is the gollow-up of "Beautiful Jasmine" appearing in "Mutual Discovery, at the end of the tunnel", recently published by

Other than what I am Jasmine, Once my beautiful jasmine, Wanted me To shine regardless. For an eternity, I’d thought, In the silence of My stony heart, Of the way I could have pleased Jasmine, Once my beautiful jasmine, But I didn’t have the answer. To shine regardless, I’ve to be Other than what I am. For, what have I done, In this world, That deserves Discredit Or admiration, Disrespect Or veneration? My donation rejected By Jasmine, Once my beautiful jasmine, Wouldn’t come from Splendor and power, But From the uniqueness of my person, Its craving for novelty And transcendence. However, Jasmine, Once my beautiful jasmine Didn’t want To live on my terms.

Mutual discovery, at the end of the tunnel

Oh, but I love your refrain "Jasmine, once my beautiful jasmine" peeking in and out of these few verses. Excellent, non-didactic moral implications, in splendidly poetic verse. --Charlie

Giving all the uniquness of one's person should be enough for any to desire. Stunning poetry.

I could feel your heart shattering at such a unkind realization, beautiful writing...
