Good point, and a nice way to work with the topic.

You don't need the quotation marks beginning and ending each line. One set to open the quote, and one to close it...or you could put God's words in italics.

Thanks for this thoughtful poem.

Good visual here. I was struck by "fellow inmates." Interesting take on the topic.
Well done.
You made a very good point with this poem. I like the idea of looking at others as potential beautiful blossoms for God.

Your rhyme scheme was solid throughout. Your meter varies from stanza to stanza. Reading your poem aloud, finding the accented syllables, holding to one rhythm throughout the poem would make it sing.

I really liked the concepts you were conveying here! Keep writing!
