Every Picture Tells A Story: “Maybe Someday She Will Become A Flower”

by JT on April 20, 2012

A weed grows through a crack

Of these sidewalks of pain that I walk on.

Through violence and poverty,

She slowly grows.

Layers upon layers of cigarette butts

And naysayers


A daily life of Harlem trench warfare,


She overcomes.

A tiny bud forms.

A preview of all the beauty that could be.

Maybe someday she will become a flower.

I am hopeful.
