Zen Flower

I watched you grow

Through the concrete oh little

Flower how did you grow

Never a shame

Never a blush

Yes you did rush

And shone

Your red was not a blush

Just the passion of life

Through the concrete you grow

Never letting anyone know

The pain it took

You were just looking for the rain

Yet you grew

Little flower

And shone your colors through

Your beauty shines

The burgundy of wine

Shine little flower shine

For it helps us unwind

To see a little flower be

We wish we could be like thee

To be your self

The faces we make

The mask we wear

Yet you are

Just sitting there

Being a flower

And there is

never a time we stop

That we admire

Your beauty
