A Seedling

i may be a seedling
but watch me, and wait
someday i will be strong.
my tender shoots are nothing to you yet
but to the insects and small animals I provide shelter
i’m practicing for the day i shelter you.
i can teach you
to stay rooted and reach for the sky
to allow others to find home in your arms.
i will bear fruit
and give you clean air to breathe
i will try to make your world beautiful.
i will always be where you left me
and i will stay there for your children
and their children, and their children…
I may be a seedling
but watch me and wait
someday I will be strong.
