“Bloom where you are planted,”
My mother taught to me,
When grounded in God’s enriched soil,
Just like the tall oak tree.
For you will grow in knowledge,
And wisdom …. God’s your friend,
Life will send some storms and winds,
Yet, you won’t break … but you will bend.
And if you’re planted and your roots,
Are strong and you are stable,
You will “bloom where you are planted,”
To handle life …. you will be able.
