One Day

I am a

beautiful prickly cactus

rose of the desert

in my hair

fruit of the desert

from my limbs

withstand the weather

by my frame

drink rain

water in my veins

beneath thick skin

soft within

smooth? yeah

without these spines

await that time

one day

ain’t now, for now

bears hot sun

hot sun bears down this

cactus still

survives.
