Growing 

 

I am a small sapling 

A small human. 

Close to my source 

Close to the Earth

Yet standing on my own. 

First just a seed, 

First just a thought

Now growing separate 

From mother tree. 

Learning about leaves

Finding my skills 

Absorbing sunlight 

Absorbing love. 

Learning about roots 

No longer connected to mother, 

But always connected to all

All of the nutrients

All of the knowledge

In the soil.

And following the blueprint 

Left in my soul

Left in my DNA

Following the plan

And growing tall.
