Offered Bloom

Gratitude, like sparse wildflowers

Blooms tenderly and steadily

In the desert of Despair –

Its colors splashed haphazardly and free

Amongst the tumbleweeds of dismay.

Though the heat of Judgement and choking

Wisps of Bitterness stab mercilessly, ceaslessly

At its fragile roots and tenuous shoots,

It blooms resolute, strong and free

Where the strong have place to find it

And the Weak draw peace in the fragrance

It selflessly offers, even after plucked.
