A Simple Seed

A Simple Seed

Existence

The seed everyone shares

Ignorant and seemingly unremarkable it grows

It becomes what it will be

It will be what it becomes

A product of the world surrounding it

 

Faith, Hope, Bravery, Belief, Trust, Acceptance

These are the roots that sprout from the seed

Selflessness, Support, Empathy, Laughter, Kindness, Celebration

These establish the trunk, by virtue of the roots, that sprout from the seed

Beauty, Love, Strength, Magic, Peace, Happiness

These form the branches, which stem from the trunk, by virtue of the roots, that sprout from the seed

 

For the better, it grows

Until it can grow no further

Obsolete and completely exhausted it dies 

From the ashes is born anew

The seed everyone shares

Existence.
