Turn to the flowers

Whenever you feel stuck,
When things are still no matter the efforts,
No matter how long it feels,
Turn to the flowers.

Admire the time that goes before they bloom,
Adore the beauty they ooze before they wilt,
Ones which bloom quick,
Are the first to wilt.

When the struggle is long,
When the efforts seem forever,
When the hope is no more,
Turn to the flowers.

They take days, weeks and months,
They fight all the odds and grow strong,
They bloom for days, unfazed.
