She was once a tiny plant,

With flowers blooming


As she grew,

She got trampled and stepped on,

Weeds grew around her,

She stopped getting her sunlight and water,

She had stones and cement thrown around her


With time she grew weaker,

And lay down looking like she had died,

Deep inside,

She felt like it was over


But with time,

Her little portion of sunlight,

The little water she got,

Made her fight just a little


Before she knew it,

She was up,

She started to rise again


She once was a flower that could only grow in soil,

But she now learnt how to maneuver and grow between stones


Weak but Strong


Sometimes it feels like its time to give up,

But you have to fight on


Sometimes it feels like you’ve given your all,

But you have nothing to show for it


Sometimes you fall on a rough road,

But have have to pick yourself up


You have to be the boxer that was losing,

But you came back and won with a knockout


You may have started the race last,

But you finished first


Sometimes you have to be the cactus,

That grows in the desert


Sometimes you have to be the rainbow,

That comes after the rain


Sometimes you may look weak like a bamboo,

But deep inside you know your are strong


Sometimes you have to shed a tear,

That say lets try this one more time


Sometimes you have to smile,

To show that you haven’t given up


Sometimes you have to be your hero,

Because no one else will


So you have to go to that interview,

Do that audition again,

Talk to that director,

Visit that office,

Keep practicing for that race


Because sometimes we jump off cliffs to land in calm waters,

We jump off planes to land in the best beaches,

We get lost in forests only to discover how beautiful they are,

We are forced to travel the road less taken only to find what we need,

We get lost in the sea only to find breathe taking islands,

And we get lost in deserts only to find that the mirage was real,

We lose a fight so that we can learn how to win it


When you are at the verge of giving up,

When your face looks weak and your body feels like,

At least let your heart be strong
