Even sunflowers endure shadows.
That doesn’t stop the bee from visiting.
Even the happiest people endure pain.
That doesn’t stop us from growing.
Our perfect vision of the future may be spotted and marred
We keep going.
We keep striving.
For the sun.
Through the shadows,
we don’t stop.
Sunflowers don’t remain in the shadows
They burst through the darkness.
For whatever comes next.
