To Survive

Plunge into ocean waters
Enjoy darkness full of life
Colors and shapes not thought of
Wade amongst Nature striving to survive

Climb into a dark cavern
Hollow, yet inhabits life
Shelter from the frigid storms
Dry floors and walls, a home in which to survive

Living severe droughts and storms
Reaching many highs and lows
Scrambling for some harmony
Faith in all experiences to survive

Life of a Flower

It isn't the garden in which I was raised
Nor the abundance that nourished me in my young days
It was my acceptance of the resources given
And my love for light that kept me striven

I could never complain of the rain that cleansed
They were loving kisses, I sensed
Though my home was filled with mud,
I took it in to sprout my buds

When it was time for my beauty to share,
I danced in the wind under Sunshine's care.
I contribute to life here on Earth
And with love, I find rebirth.
