The vibrance of a lily


A lily that lands among the weeds
May not always recognize or see
Exactly what it is surrounded by
The lily, soft and delicate as it is
May see only a different
But equally beautiful flower
And the lily is accepting
It bonds well with the weeds
Until one day the lily begins to fade
Its vibrant colors turn to a dull gray
But the lily is strong, it recovers well
It begins to grow among the other lilies
The vibrancy it once held soon returns
And among the lilies it finds a place
Of comfort and happiness to spend its days
