Here I stand

Here I stand
a flower
battered and bruised
by yesterday’s storms.

Here I stand
rain and tears mingling
nourishing my roots
strengthening my resolve
softening my harsh edges.

Here I stand
a seemingly fragile flower
still blooming
my roots go deep
my ground unshakeable.

Here I stand
smiling to the garden of flowers
around me
enjoying life
loving life
soaking up the sun
no harking back to when
I was a seed, a shoot, a bud.

Here I stand.
