Growing Under Soil

(freewrite: just a series of thoughts.)

Growing under soil

is this budding seed

with a crystal clear idea

of what it's going to be

growing under soil

where nobody can see

the roots are spreading

faithfully, before they form a tree

This is the path of life

the way it was meant to be

joy, pain, rewards, shame

this is the process

it's all the same

I want to tackle life

when I become a tree

I'm in such a hurry

to be who I want to be

struggles make me stronger

hardships make me wiser

the challenge is to provide oxygen

through the tears that make me harder

a cold, empty tree

is poisonous to the earth

God, protect this little seed

and see it through its birth

This is the path of life

the way it was meant to be

joy, pain, rewards, shame

this is the process

it's all the same

Free of any coal

this diamond shines alone

not knowing what to do

trying to find a home

people use this diamond

for their various daily tasks

testing the hardness of the diamond

and unknowingly

making it harder, more invincible

to herself this diamond asks

so, is this my purpose, then?

where do I belong?

I don't want to do this anymore

been doing this too long

the gem needs more creativity

to set the purpose of her life

so happiness and loyalty

will be the anchor through her strife

This is the path of life

the way it was meant to be

joy, pain, rewards, shame

this is the process

it's all the same

God, set me free

show me the light one day

so I can follow it

and by your grace, lead the way

If I fall

well this is life

If I want to live

then I must fight

and don't forget to love

this is the challenge

I must not forget to love
