You are stronger…

You are stronger
than you know.
Look at the flowers
of the world’s gardens,
their delicate beauty.
Who would think they could survive
the pounding of the rain,
the thrashing of the wind?
But they do. They do.
Search them out after the storm,
and take courage.

  1. I love this line, “Search them out after the storm, and take courage.” I have recently been challenged to find ways the universe can teach me lessons I need to learn. Those flowers can be a gentle teacher on the lesson of strength. Lovely poem.
