Roots of life

In the jungle where animals roam free
 From atop the highest tree
A seed falls to the ground
In the earth,  its'  roots of life are found

The mighty oak was once a seed
An acorn with the instructions it needs
To become what it was meant to be
 From the jungle floor it rises  to become a sturdy tree

The seeds of hope reside  within our being
In winter, there is the hope of spring
When there's drought, there is the  hope of rain
When all seems lost, hope still remains

In this vast universe love is king
It's the reason for sunshine and rain
The reason why we're here is plain
The seeds of love  dwell within  all things
