To survive

Written by: Seren Roberts

Swaying away in the glints of the sun
shielding the mice from the birds overhead
smiling shly thinking my work's nearly done
nearly time to sleep in my earthy bed

Soon the sky will darken, sun disappears
the fronds  will curl up to sleep till dawn
When sun is up , it stretches and re-appears
ready to shield and hide and look upon 

The fronds remind me of a parents part
in shielding and keeping us from harm
This done with  love and from the heart
always there for us , always  so calm

Relaxed in the knowledge of a job well done
opens up the shield lets the light into our lives
Time for us all to make the decisions alone
your folks step back, it's up to us to survive
