The Light in the Shadows

I am the flowering hope
In a land of hard ground,
I fight my way up
Through the cold darkness
To a bud
Then a flower glowing like the hidden sun,
Inside myself

I hope to spread the seeds of my flower
So hope won’t just be in me
But inside others
In this cold place
Where the ground is cold
But not frozen

The thawing will come
Then the scared will break free
The sun will come out from its hidden realm above the clouds
To feed the flowers that grow and wilt,
We will be a garden
Brighter than the sun,
A garden of love peace and hope
With no fear or hate.

The emotion really shown through your words, and you seemed to shine brighter and brighter as the poem went along.  Nice job :)

Great Message. Great emotion and great voice. That was really good and really intersting also. Suggestion: Maybe add a little bit more of emotion. Just a minor suggestion other than that it was really good.
