How do you

“When life breaks you,
How do you stand tall?
When sadness hits you,
How do you cry it all?

I remind myself of the lilacs
Competing with wisteria for
The best perfume act
That delights us more.

To bloom sounds simple but for me it’s hard,
Perhaps it’s because I’m not a flower so I lack the art
Of being patient as I get used to my cards,
My thorns cold and sharp from the start.

What does one do with a beating heart
That beats fast under the sun but lacks
Strength to go on whenever the rain starts
Unable to, happy thoughts, get back?

Oh, dear flower,
How do you stand tall?
Tell me, dear rain,
How do you cry it all?”
