My Mind is a Sprouting Seed


My mind is a sprouting seed;

Knowledge a necessity,

Growth a challenge.


Too much impatience causes me to wilt;

Too much change causes me to lose my bearings.

The right amount of understanding is what I need.


I need a base to thrive,

And time to succeed.

The only way to survive

Is to be able to proceed.
