How Seeds Grow

Hope Wolbach


you can feed your future without starving your past

you do not need to dig the roots up from the soil that you were once planted from

accept that the soil provided for you

and the rain tethered you in just the right spots

this is the ground that birthed you

despite the wind that tried to scatter you

do not dig or pull

just wind your roots in a different direction

to face your buds towards the sunlight
