Flowers In The Desert

There’s an endless strength

To a flower that grows in a desert

I’ve seen her, for years at length;

Blossom in fire, and bloom in the dirt


She’s been the forest to my children

Abundant in all that she yields

The wellspring of my soul, my oasis

My treasure in black-gold-fields


There’s an endless strength

To a flower that grows in a desert

I’ve seen him, for years at length

Blossom in fire, and bloom in the dirt


He’s been the forest to my children

Abundant in all that he yields

The wellspring of my soul, my oasis

My treasure in black-gold-fields


There’s an endless strength

To the flowers that grow in the desert

That’s who we are, for years at length

We are the flowers that bloom in the desert


-Suraj Mani
