Bend

February 23, 2017


Bend never broken
Burned as the fires
Rage above me
Until I go back underground
There I return to my roots and seeds
As they split and divide
And I become a thousand times
Divided stronger and spread
The storms rage tear me from the earth
But I bend and grow my roots into the hills

I never die
I fall
I burn
I split
I divide
But never die
Broken
Bent
But never gone

And I surrender to the storm
I surrender to the fire
I surrender to the winds
I love them even as they
Break and burn me
Into the earth I lay
My head and find my strength
I find meaning
Vision
Love
Compassion

Bend
Break
Crash
Burn
But never die

I rise
In a thousand seeds
Carried by the wind

Over and over
Forever
