Once upon a time

A flower bloomed

With the brightest of color

 

Her color glowed

For all the world to see

And she was happy

 

But darkness lurked above

The grayest of clouds

 

A storm was about to rage.

 

Her petals closed

She shrunk back in fear

 

The wind slashed around her

Howling with power

 

Rain drenched her;

Weighed her down

 

Slowly her color dimmed

Within that storm around and inside

 

And when the sun shined once more,

That little flower

No longer grew.
