The Seed

The seed,


Nourished by nature,

Hoping to grow,

To flourish, bloom,


Yet risks exist,

Eaten by carrion craving crows,

Not scared by scarecrows,

Down, torn from the earth,

Limb from limp dead limb,

Competition for recognition,

Light, sun, food,

Matters where sown,

Before grown,

Some starved,

Some over faced, overfed

Obese futures,

Gluttony of greed,

Drugs, chemicals, injected,


Affect growth, thought, mind,


Some live, some die,

Never knowing why,

Some flourished,

Others malnourished,

We are the young,

We are,
