Swift Rapport

Like a colony of trees,

Resources we share for all to bare

Twist and swerve; curl and duck

Drawing in and in, each winding root

Water, endless pools of pristine liquid

Each and every sapling will swallow with glee,

Each droplet, a glistening past

Sliding against our ancestor's ancient wellspring

A seed left to germinate,

To culminate, something much more

A family is growing and together we remain,

For generations to come, for the sake of our progeny,

No concern for homogeny

We will roar like tides, together as one,

Individuality, a necessity born whole,

No one will dare, 

Uproot one, 

Uproot all

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
Our world
