DESERT ROSE



Born in tough terrain 
You adapt and learn to live
In harsh heat
Storing in you what it takes to survive
In all that struggle
To stay alive
You still have beauty
Stored up deep inside

Then one day
You surprise
The whole wide world
As you burst into bloom
A dessert Rose

The scorching sun
Could not scar you
It could not stop
What you were ment to be
You burst out
Defying everything
Such beauty  speaking of Hope
Making my heart glad
Delightful dessert Rose.
