There are flowers

I ran across this poem this morning on another blog and it really gave me hope. Just like the flowers that bloom after the fire (pain), I still have time to bloom.

Fade Into Oblivion

There are flowers
In this world
That only grow
After the ground
Above them burns.

Scientists say
That the fire sets
The earth aflame
With the birth of these
Special flowers which
Wouldn’t grow otherwise,
That even though the fire
Seems to destroy
Everything it touches
It can also bring
New colours into this world.

What I’m trying to say
Is that healing hurts
But so does forgiveness,
And sometimes it is worth it
To see yourself bloom.
