"The Great Provision" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on December 11, 2014

"The Great Provision"

I remain; hidden

Searching for that perfect place


Stuck in the narrative

The weight of the world

Our eternal war; lies in the dirt

Crawl now on your knees

For you need err

Fail... and fail again... know what it is to fall; planting yourself deep

Down into the dark; unto the earth

So to be reborn unto the new consciousness

A supreme experience; balancing the mind body and soul

The seed; recieveth the sun

For, so the seed can grow

Into the sky

Unto the heavens; roots embedded in hell

I remain; hidden, I the seed that fell

Unto this rich soil

Lost in the darkness, waiting for the dawn

Asking for an awakening

Where as

The giver; gaveth thee light

The giver; gaveth thee rain

I; receivethd thee gifts

Thus receiveth thee pain

The package deal; furthering growth

Unto a towering tree; a place for my inner child to play

A strong, natural playground; rooted on a hill

Sitting in the sun; sharing my shade

He leans against me and folds his hands behind his head

I support him; giving him a piece of myself

Blessed be his task; supplying joy

      Thanks Whonu, I agree; the poetic heart is an introspective and reflective one.

      Dear Eric,

      I love this poem.It entails how a seed grows. This could be used as lesson starter or value integration for topics related to plants.

      On the other hand, this poem could be associated to people's lives. This also mirrors how our lives develop and seek for assistance and protection from others. Moreover, this likewise expresses our value to others.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      Glad to read this,
