A Fighter, A Survivor…

DSC05801 (2)

i am the leftover

of the flowers that bloomed

i continue to prosper

in spite of the arid spell

i continue to function

in spite of the corollary dead vines

i didn’t forget

to darken the color of my petals

i still know how to carry out photosynthesis

among my leaves

‘though i know

some of my branches are mortified

still, i continue to thrive among the vines

i want to outlive them

i want to branch out some more

i don’t embrace surrendering

to the dryness of the clime

because

i am a fighter

i am a survivor…
