Flower's Seed Poem

It’s what we’ve all been searching for

Like the breath of fresh air

The lung yearns for


It’s the river on which we all sail

That which drowns the tender reed


But just what is it?


It’s a question, awaiting an answer

Like the soul afraid of dying and yet learns to live

The sum no mathematician can solve


He who seeks it, is left broken

Like a dream, afraid of waking

And yet we all embrace it

Because it is like hunger

An endless aching need


But just what is it?


It brings one so much glee

And like a razor, leaves your soul to bleed

Given reason and not choice

A mistake we’ll make again


And if you ask me

Just what is it?

I’ll tell you: It’s a flower

And you its only seed

That after the bitter snows of the winter

With the sun’s love in the spring

Blossoms out from deep within. :)
