Of Weeds and Prayers

One stubborn weed
pushes upward from a tiny crack
between the wall and the sidewalk
proving in that narrow space
life will not be denied
flowers and seeds are its reward

My stubborn prayer
pushes upward from life’s clutter
defying the world’s narrow view
proving beyond circumstance
God’s grace cannot be denied
His presence is my reward
