The Flower Against the Wall

Against the Wall

                                    Melba Christie (c) 2014

I once saw this flower

resting and growing

on a wall

I could not believe

it would grow to be so tall

but its singular beauty

gave it strength

As everyone who

saw it

only has something

gracious to say.


Children grow strong

and confident

in the very same way.

Give them encouragement

and make them feel special

and they will thrive

and surprise you

when they realize their potential.
