Microwave Trees

A single seed...

Microwave Trees

For those of you who are wondering

Why you're unhappy,

Just know,

The world is your oyster,

It loves you so much,

But,

EVERYTHING

Worth having

Can only become real

By working it into reality.

A single seed

Can become a forest

If you'll only

Love it enough

Give it time enough

Show it faith

And patience

And STRENGTH enough

To believe in—

No—

KNOW enough

To take what the world—

That loves you so much—

Has given to you

And create this new reality.

Because—

Take it from one

Who's done EVERYTHING wrong;

Dreams are already alive.

You'll kill them if you put them in a microwave.
