You are a flower
Awaiting to bloom
Struggling to grow
In a place that has very little room
Where the best moments are in the rain
Running down your leaves
With the vibrant colors leaving you
At a moment in peace
The heat of the sun warming you
After a night so cold
A warrior like a weed
Stubborn and strong
Enough to grow through the cracks
Where no one wants to go
People don’t notice what will happen
Like a plant that has no care
No one questions until it is time
When you start to bud
Showing the colors of a flower that rises
No competition because you are one of a kind
But an Awe
When you show your petals
Like a swan with so much beauty
People will stare but no one dares
To touch the blooms of such radiance
They are scared
For the bloom of love is the sweetest one
Your smile will touch their core
For you will be happier
Then you ever knew before
