And Still a Flower Grew

Broken and bent,

Braving the harshest of conditions,

Amidst rocky soil,

Turbulent storms and blistering sun,

And still a flower grew. 

Lifting her petals to the sky,

Reaching for the light,

Sharing her beauty,

Her hope,

Her determination. 

Defiantly joyful

Until her last petal danced to the earth.

Even then, she smiled

For the gift of a life well-lived.
