Ever Blossoming

The dark water,
the dirt in my life,
hid my beauty.
I was alone.
My world was
unrecognizable.
I couldn’t breathe.
After some time,
things started to change.
I was able to see
true colors again.
The Son began to
shine in me,
washing away the
dirt and filth.
He breathed new
life into my soul.
I emerged as a
fresh, budding flower.
I am beautiful,
stronger than before.
Ever blossoming.
