Cactus Heart Part 2 contest

You would assume I am thirsty in this dyer heat,
Or that my needles would cause others to depart,
You would conclude that my flowers were only for show
Or that if someone didn’t water me I would never mature,
But what you don’t see in plain eye sight
Is that I am flourishing with waters of integrity and stability,
Under these thorns you call choked up defenses
Breeds the strength to survive all shames and facades,
According to you I require little maintenance… but I know better,
I know how to absorb all I need during storms and tranquility,
For I was strategically placed in this atmosphere,
So all I need dwells in my structure enabling me to live victoriously,
Beasts may lurk when sandstorms arise,
And mirages may cause others to be mislead
Signs and wonders May appear in fallen sky’s to deceive
Weary soldiers may forget to defend and retreat
I stand my post and flaunt my spears,
For a cactus heart survives all endeavors.
