The Peace Lily by HDThePoet

I went to ask the peace lily advice, 

In my darkest times. 

When I knew not where I was in life, 

And I felt life knew not who I was. 

I went to ask the peace lily advice. 

The flower that blooms even in darkness. 

How can you persist, when the whole world seems to be against you. 

How can you be happy when life has its moments. 

How can you bloom, when life gives you nothing to grow for. 

The peace lily said the word is adaptation, 

The word is grieve, 

The word is acceptance, 

The word is positivity, 

The word is peace, 

The word is faith, 

The word is manifestation…

He said…

These words grow me from my roots, and life gave me those things too.
