Flowers in the Ashes

Ayana Harris

The world in my eyes--

It's a scary place out there,

But there is also an exquisite beauty,


It shows in people that you would never expect it from.

And, pocket-sized acts of kindness can change a person's life


In a world of ash and gray,

A flower is not granted a life.

But, when it is provided sunlight and water,

It has a chance.

For every act of gentleness, 

a flower may blossom--

a soul

can learn the art of graciousness.

Yes, the world is a scary place,

And although all the world is not covered with flowers,

At least we will have enough people to

make a  Garden.
