“Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.”
― Thomas Keneally, Schindler's List

There's a flower,

Etched onto the desk,

In midnight ink.


Smudged, full bloom,

A faded first try a bit away,

Petals scratched in rough hesitance.


I wonder, who drew it?

Fiddling with sapphires,

Curving the shapes.


Was their mind clouded with rebellion?

Or crystal with intent?

Did they see beauty?

I was just in RE class one day, and I look down and see this gorgeous graffitied flower. I got inspired and rushed to write this poem.
