I am like a flower
Not sure of when I will die.
Not sure of when I will grow back again
When I am crushed with pain and cry.
I am not sure if I can hold myself up
When I ache with unbearable pain.
What do I do when my petals fall off?
Do I go find them out in the rain?
What do I do when I'm not given enough water, to make it through the day?
What do I do when I look up in the sky?
And the sun doesn't show a ray?
I stand as tall as a flower would,
As long as I possible can.
I will stand and show my colors,
That is what I plan.
I may drupe and my petals may fall,
But that won't stop me from growing.
My love, honesty and beauty,
I will keep showing.
I am like a flower,
Strong and supreme.
I may be trampled on,But I will never lose faith in my dreams.
