Petals bloom, conveying promise to humanity,
Your giggles are the fragrance you liberate,
Hope is in your thriving without moisture,
Faith is in your death and resurrection,
Joy is the ugliness you beautify.
Persistence is how you close up at dusk,
And yawn at dawn,
Your sepals ever green preaches
My melanin shouldn’t be whitened,
Beloved flower, your blossom is my motivation.
