Creative Challenge 249: Pout

Pansy Close-up

No, I am not sulking
Just the way I grow
Have a permanent pout
Do not feel low
If you were a pansy
You would know how I feel
The blues and the yellow
Have a much better deal
I am a dark one
Lots of red marks
I might not be pretty
but am in lots of parks
Some find me pretty
Others find me plain
But all leave me growing
Alone in the rain
I smiled for your photo
You have a lot of doubt?
It is just the way I look
And no, I do not pout.
