Blossom

Let it blossom

 

Part of a greater garden

Part of the growing green future

Beyond this lush garden

Born of economic, existential, educational

Trauma.

 

Let it blossom

 

Let it start

With a prayer

From poor

Single parents

Wanting to break

From the false

Scarcity model.

 

Let it blossom

 

So the saplings

And the seedlings

Can be nourished

From knowledge

Buried under history’s

Dense weight.

 

Let it blossom

 

Let them blossom

Into strong, healthy

Branches, bear

Myriad fruits

Children of tomorrow

Can feast on

And digest

 

The lessons that will break them out of poverty.
