There is more to living than just growing.
Thriving, defying, gaining; becoming something stronger.
This is bold.
It is not how you surround yourself. Protect yourself.
More than that, it is where you put down roots.
How far you let them go.
Not delicate. This one, blooming in full sun.
Throwing its petals out, face up, and owning the heat.
Feeling the glory.
A small victory at every sunset.
A new defeat every day.
