A flower ‘mong the thorns

20130721-184009.jpg

from deep within the thorns
a flower suddenly emerges
it’s beauty contrasting its host
but within a day forever gone

her father was addicted
and her mother, she had left
a flower ‘mong the thorns
it withers quickly and is lost

the cart with her belongings
she pushes round the town
and no one can remember
the flower ‘mong the thorns

the lilies on her casket
recalling what is lost
the flower ‘mong the thorns
in final autumn bloom
