A flower cannot grow alone.
It must find soil to have a home.
It starts as a seed, it probably won’t survive.
The odds are great the seed will die.
It’s a small chance but the seed succeeds.
It must steal sunlight and water from the tenacious weed.
With hope and care the seed begins to sprout.
It must fend off the occasional drought.
After a while the seed is a fully-grown stem.
Mother Nature can no longer extinguish it on a whim.
The stem will contain an invigorating power.
On it will grow a beautiful flower.
The flower will soon shoot its seeds into the air.
Once again the tenacious weed must beware.
