The Flower of Adversity

If you never try,
you will never know.
If there's no stuggle
there's no progress,
so how can you ever grow?
After the coldest winter
doesn't the flower bloom the most.
Each storm has its' reward,
yet not seen & doesn't show.
Stay firm & rooted,
& all shall come to pass.
Remain true to who you are
Flower of Adversity:
& just watch how long you last.

    Oops! I almost forgot to congratulate you on having your very special poem about strengthening...featured this week, Damion. (I must have been distracted by the first ever End Line Word member contest (my first sponsored contest…See my blogs for information.) Anyway, I didn’t want the week to pass without congratulating you. So, Congratulations!!! Smiles, Dane Ann
