Poem: Flower In The Midst Of Thorns




Quote of the day:

The less their ability, the more their conceit.
-Ahad HaAm



This flower that grows.
Not deeply in the earth.
But alas steeply in concrete.
I should know.
I come across it daily..
I watch it struggle..

And i think just..maybe
I see the petals fall off.
For a flower life is also tough.

This flower that grows.
In the midst of thorns.
In the comfort of our homes.
Sleep through a new day, a new dawn.
