We Bloomed

we bloomed

in homeless hearts

petals singed

stems blood-tinged

but

oh, how we bloomed! 🌸

my darlings

didn't we?

buried beneath their pain

for all the world's unseens...

yet

we flourished

we climbed

dipped in sunshine,

reaching for the skies.

continually

defying every breath

of their iniquity.

we bloomed

within wombs

of hate-filled hosts

with resentment wounds.

but

oh, how we bloomed!

my darlings

didn't we?

like dandelions

between the sidewalk cracks

stepped on

still...

we always grew back!
