To Believe In The Future

To plant a seed

is to believe in the future

to believe in the routine


will bring about

the juicy fruition

of something

beautiful and healing

to behold.

The fruit that bears

of change and healing.

A cycle that happens

regardless of the day to day

are spilling out

like a waterfall.

Gushing over the edge

the roaring rush of water —


enough to sweep you away.

The sense of calm and serenity

behind a curtain of such force

hidden away

from the rest of the world.

Yet other times

the words trickle out

as if rationed:
