And outa nowhere,  my eyes landed on it,
The beautiful flowers , flowers so perfect
The polychromatic flowers so rare, yet so pure,
Movin ' closer , marvelling at the gem
Rare gem, so pure, not tainted, not flawed
Ooh!The fragrance so blissful, so alluring
The pure nesh petals, so irresistible

But wait!, something strange, how could it be?,
On a rock?, makes no sense ,amidst thorns?
sum'n  real bizarre,sumn' so rare,
Oooh !the will to survive, to thrive, to blossom
Battling to survive, stay alive and blossom,
In the struggle, they became stronger ,
Became more  charming,more alluring,
What a lesson I learnt, to fight like the flowers,

Oooh !unproductive ground, you mean nothin'
When will there is, the victory I own
Failure I impede, the battle I conquer,
In the struggle,I survive, stronger I become
I'm invincible, a child of a warrior
Never givin' up, but onward marching
Failure I impede, the battle I conquer,
