Look for the flowers among the weeds,
The jewels among the rubble,
The rainbow amidst the rain,
The sliver of sun behind every cloud,
The flavors in your plate of food,
The music amidst the noise,
The patches of green in the concrete jungle,
The warmth in chilly mornings,
The faint stars in the urban night sky,
The smiles behind the tears,
The longing for joy despite deep sorrow,
The spark of hope behind despair,
And the unspoken yet tender feelings.
No matter how heavy your heart and soul is,
There is always cause for celebration.
Life may be dark and cruel and dreary,
And everything around you may be a mess.
Even so, the world is still beautiful.
