I’m Just a Seed

I’m just a seed; I want to be a tree
I want the sun to kiss my first green leaf
The earth is where I want my feet to be
If life is growth, I hope it isn’t brief!
But if you need my warmth, come cut me down
I grow to give the world my sacred gifts
The earth may touch my roots, the sky, my crown
I know with warmth, the lowest spirit lifts
I want to be a tree to give you shade
I want to give the world a breath of peace
I know you know it’s how your air is made
I know my warmth is mine to give, release
But first, I know my planting is a need
To be a tree of love; I’m just a seed!
