Cactus






(Image taken from here)

Cactus...
Tagged distinct prickly ugly plant
But, survives even if the soil is so dry
survives even if the sky doesn't cry
Burning heat, biting cold or heavy rain doesn't change her state
Extremes of any season doesn't change her fate
There's no wanting for others, to care for her
She doesn't look for spring, although she slowly withers
Struggles on her own to mark her existence
Protects herself from enemies, Her prickly thorns are her fence
Loner, stands alone in the corner, rooted deeply
When birds accompanies other tender flowery plants, She has no envy
Stands independent always, Isn't she a plant of real strength and real beauty?
