she doesn't grow like the other ones
because of this some envy her
some look down upon her
she survives in the center of the desert
she sustains through the harshest winters
she survives even when surrounded by weeds
but despite these struggles she emerges
stronger and more vibrant than everĀ 
there is always one among us
she is a wildflower
long may she grow

Favorite Quote:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

this is so good!
