The Seed

Sunflowers Public Domain Department of Agriculture



I am

I am the seed

Planted in the crevices of time

Rising from this dark, wet dirt of mine

Choked by weeds of life

Remaining me through strife

Scorching sun rises high

So will I

What will I be

Just wait and see

I am the seed

You watered day and night

Remaining ever in the fight

Can’t you see

It is me

The one you loved so dear

I am always near

I am the seed

I am

    Whether you meant it to mean this or not, I see in this poem the faithfulness of God. No matter how difficult our trials, He will see us through as we are “remaining ever in the fight”. Praise God for His faithfulness. 🙂
