One day
you feel like you’re growing,
seizing the day,
reaching for the sun.

Then suddenly, wham!
You get dumped on,
buried in a thick layer of
cold, wet snow.

What do you do?
You push through.
You stay focused.
You create such energy
that the snow which
once weighed you down
simply melts away.

The snow lingers elsewhere,
but you’ve made a special
spot in the world
where there’s nothing but
and room to grow.
Because you know
it’s the only way
you’ll ever really bloom.
