Against All Odds

Posted · 1 Comment



Found in Cooper Landing, Alaska…fighting it’s way thru the asphalt

“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet
Funny it seems, but keeping it’s dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared”



Against All Odds

There was a child born once in the darkest place

She evolved in the crack of a concrete case

Where trodden feet in life’s fast race

Trampled her stems at a grueling pace

She took root where there was no base

Where sun never shows its nurturing face

No guiding heat, no air to breathe

No warm embrace to fill the seed

With light.

But early in her augmentation

She realized her situation

Would require more than determination

If she were to reach that destination

A place so far above her station

Where those beneath her in consternation

Stood above her, bold and brazen

Failed to guide her, took her breath

Squashed her to the brink of death

No light.

But somewhere deep in the darkest crevice

With strength rare seen her stems were steadfast

She grasped at chances, stood strong regardless

And wove her way up towards the precipice

Against all odds, out of the darkness

She felt herself emerge in brightness

Grasping, reaching, strong of core

Always looking for the lore

Of light.

Years passed by while she on her journey

Knowing no life but that of yearning

Strived upwards, always, reaching, stretching

Never giving up the need

That one day she, a concrete seed

Would blossom high above the street

May she always remember the fear of night

And her lifelong struggle to find

The light.
