The Greatest Flower

The happiest are not those with everything they desire
But those content to give everything others require.
The strongest are not the knights in shining armour, unable to fall
But the ones with the most scars, yet still standing tall
The bravest are not the warriors with the winning streak
But those who win in defending the weak
The beautiful are not those who outshine others’ brightness
But those whose light others can find in the darkness
The flower with the greatest fragrance was not born unhurt
But was once degraded deep below, buried in dirt
The wisest are not those who know the most and show
But the ones who understand how little they know
The free are not the ones who can do whatever they lust
But those who will to do that which is just
The greatest are not those far above
But the ones who become the foundation of love
