    Even in the most undesirable of situations,
    the harshest of conditions,
    the least hopeful of scenarios,
    it always finds a way to get back up
    and fight back.

    As it delicately masters the art of re-birth,
    it rises up and screams at the heavens,

    "...I am still here, and I will prevail."
