Life can be ironic sometimes

The things you once pined for

Become the things you loathe

And the places you once loved to go

Sometimes feel like the inside of a cell


Recall the promises that brought you here

Though it may not feel like it today,

You are not stuck, you are planted. 

The days may feel long

You’ll feel like quitting sometimes

But God has you here for a reason.

So Bloom!
