Seed of God

Seed of God

A Poem by sue

At some point in my life I became aware of the seed of God deep in my being.  I nurtured this seed with thoughts and actions of love and peace and truth and freedom. I protected this seed from the attacks of the world and never betrayed the integrity of it’s being.

 

  As the years went by I discovered that most of the people around me had either sold their seed to the highest bidder or had fed it thoughts and actions motivated by fear until it withered and died.

 

Finally after finding out that I could not be bought or scared into submission, the world decided to erase me.  But by this time the seed of God had become my main reason for being and I fought a long hard battle to protect it.   Alas I was overwhelmed by superior odds and was trampled to death.

 

But lo and behold I found out there is no death.  And when I looked inside my being to the place where the seed of God was planted, in its stead was a magnificent, radiant tree.  The minions of the world attacked the tree with their machines and weapons only to find out their weapons were useless and their machines broke down.  So at the end of the siege the little egos of the world took their broken toys and left.

 

  It was then I realized I was not the trampled ego lying in the dirt but the magnificent, radiant tree with roots sunk deep in Mother Earth for sustenance.  I no longer needed the world but now the world needed me.

Wow, very beautifully put. Not many people have the courage to notice their inner tree. Most people would rather just live their lusty lives through their hot rodded toys and live in constant excess. Very good write.

It is easy to get lost. We must hold on to hope and kindness. Poem told a powerful story. Your ending was the answer. A excellent poem.

A little long for a poem? But I did like what you had to say in it.
We could all use a seed like this that grows to help others.
Great write!!! Thanks for sharing.

Nice piece. You know my opinion on such things, but I still enjoyed your passion and vigor.

Quite well written, seems this is straight off the cuff, but doesn't falter in your conviction.
