DESERT FLOWERS


She lived in the desert,

where the earth was far too hot,

and every flower she grew,

she grew within a pot.


She was a girl, so far from home,

who loved a garden still,

so instead of giving up

she found a different earth to till.


She bought her pots and seeds,

and watered night and day,

until the flowers she always loved,

began to push up through the clay.


Where there’s a will there’s a way.

If you live inside a barren place,

buy yourself a pot, and find a way

to make yourself, the things you haven’t got.
