Sunflower

Sunflower seed

On the sidewalk

Dropped by passerby

 

From Dirt

Slipped through the cracks

But put down roots

 

She’d never grow through concrete

Her story so sad the clouds wept

And the sun’s core burned with empathy

 

But soon the seed would sprout

Soaking up the gift of life

And stretching to the sky
