Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Seed Of Life
The Seed Of Life

A seed implanted into life
who grows, and cautiously
stretches forth to grasp,
and learn and try

A blossom opening to a rose
as knowledge pollinates our minds
The sweet perfume of dreams
drifting from petals of anticipation

A flower, vulnerable toward life,
unheedful of obstacles ahead,
yearning, eager, hopeful,
impatient to extend

The gentle showers of achievements
nourish ambitions hidden under doubt
Endeavous failed, but wisdom gained,
adventures lie ahead

Our roots entwined by friendships,
treasured memories formed,
branching out our minds return
and linger on forgotten times

The season is for laughter,
for memories and smiles
It is a time to journey toward
horizons yet unknown
