This poem represents the mere illusion of a good life and just facing
reality. The flowers are an illusion of an good life that is impossible for
one to live in this time of age. During different seasons and different
periods of time, flowers fade away and die out while worms adapt to their
environment despite harsh or unpleasant conditions. The worms represent
reality while the flowers represents the good life most Americans dream of
but will never happen.
