Weeds Will Win

Between fence metal hexagons Vibrant weed vertical weaves Leaves poke gaps obstinately Battle with wire web pattern Because it can get through, will get through, determined To prosper within challenge To reach potential during tough Bitten by bug of bad luck Crammed in pebbly pockmark Threatened by shade smother Bedraggled weed creeps up Bemoaning status wastes energy Positivity welcomes growth Rehearsal bears bigger talents Lustrous jungle is triumphant 9th October 2020 Written for Contest : Will To Survive Sponsor : Silent One
