Life is like a flower

Life is like a flower

Life is like a flower,
That sits outside my door,
It stands tall and willingly,
As it begins to pour.

Life is like a flower,
That changes over time,
Every single set back,
Grows a thicker vine.

Life is like a flower,
That has such grace and flare,
It’s beauty begins to blossom,
The longer that you are there.

Life is like a flower,
That wilts when no one tends,
Having to face growth alone,
Without no family and friends.

Life is like a flower,
That needs sunshine and peace,
When there is neither,
It’s pedals begin to crease.

Life is like a flower,
Full of scars and holes,
By the end of its term,
It never becomes full.

Life is like a flower,
Standing above the rest,
Having to grow independently,
It is God’s ultimate test.

What God does not understand,
Is how fast one can grow.
When being put against the odds,
Triumph is the only thing known.
