Poem about Family

A poem about the cycle of life. We are all intertwined and help others grow.

Seeds Of Growth

© David Rivera
Water the seed and a plant will grow
Feed the plant and a tree will grow
Give a tree room and it will bloom
A seed to a plant
A plant to a tree
A boy to a man
A man to a father
Care for the boy and the man will grow
Teach the man and a father will grow
I see my boys
I see my joy
Care for my boys, and I, the man will grow
Teach me, my boys, and your father will grow
You can't have the tree without the plant
You can't have the plant without the seed
I can't be a father without being a man
I, the man, can't be a father without my boys
The cycle of life
The man, the boys, the father
The seed, the plant, the tree
