Xerophytes

Life 

Rough and harsh,

Sometimes treats,

Not just plants 

Humans too,

With disdain,

Distraught , they move on ,

Still they learn  to live,

In xerophytic conditions

Devoid of things essential,

Lacking love and care,

Facing dismal shocks,

In penury,

Under cruelty,

 But bloom to glory

Beautiful and fragrant 

Like flowers 

In the desert land.
