Geraniums for Sue


I know of a girl named Sue
and I’ve seen her endure everything life has to offer
I’ve seen her place her palms on walls to navigate through the dark
I’ve seen her rise back up every time she fell on her way to the top of that mountain
I’ve seen her fight through tears
And I envy her
she is nothing short of a warrior
She takes everything she loves and balls into to her first
And she fights for it
I know so because she’s fought for me
I see the toll her body has taken for being strong for so long
And this time she doesn’t think she can’t get back up
I have faith she can
I’ll take that boulder she’s been carrying and I will carry it for awhile
So she can rise her face to the sun and it’s glory
Just as Geraniums go through the dark to become
She must do so too
And I can’t wait to see her bloom
My little warrior named Sue
