A poem about the earth and how it is taken forgranted
as the world sees it
it is nothing but dirt
brown and cracked
after a harsh winter without the sun
as the world sees it
it is nothing but water
plain and flavorless
a last resort drink
as the world sees it
it is nothing but a seed
food for the birds
easily mistaken for a pebble
as the world sees it
it is nothing but a mess of roots
thinly stretched out
and effortlessly pulled away
as the world sees it
it is nothing but weak
trample
with slim chances of succeeding
but as i see it
it is soil
rich with nourishment
able to sustain life
and as i see it
it is vital
something that fuels and saves
and quenches those who thirst
and as i see it
it is life itself
together in one
prepared to grow
and as i see it
it is the base
what keeps us grounded
and pulls us back to earth
and as i see it
it is a flower
standing tall and proud
informing us
spring is back
