Growing Seeds and Roots

Growing Seeds and Roots

Something sturdy and stable,
to be the foundation.
Building and climbing and growing,
upon ever-deepening roots.

If only we had a focus,
and being among the earth
and planting within the soil
were the priorities of all we are.

So easy and too easy,
to consume and be consumed
by vanity and lust and greed.
We want in so many ways,
to conquer and to have.

Redemption and risk: You are here in all of this.
But where are we?
