The seed

you know

the pain of a seed

to germinate

to push through

to absorb moisture

to spread its leafy wings

to break free

of all boundaries

to break free

of time

of principles of life

but still it keeps trying

every day

every moment

to grow

to push through

to sprout

to become that big tree

that it knows it can grow to

and it becomes one day.

but the struggle remains

the pain persists

even after the first sprout

even after cracking open the ground above

even now

as it breathes

drinks and eats

it pushes through and

flourishes

prospers

shines

and pushes again

the seed is the beginning

but the spirit is the same

the seed in the soil

in your mind

in your heart

trying to push through

all the time

just allow it to!
