I’ve spent so many years fighting them

Fighting their life-giving pull

Fighting each new shoot

Each new line of life adding strength and security


I’ve spent so many years searching for them

The roots that were severed

Cut off by new opportunities

Too perfect to pass on

Too necessary for continued growth

Replanted with more room for love

Replanted, but still severed and disorienting


I’ve been fighting

I’ve been yearning

I’ve been trying so hard

No matter what reality is.
