Clearing the Way

A spark within the weeds created a firestorm

Charring innocent blooms of their future

Living side by side for decades among the drought of indifference

Tending to their growth unnoticed

Until contempt met fury to sever each other from existence

Abandoning any hope for reason


Can this soil become fertile again?

Where new growth can emerge among the ashes

Can we cast aside our limited seeds of reason long enough

To till the soil with our attention allowing an answer to bloom

It’s time we choose whether we awaken the harvest
