Mustard Seeds

by animalworkss

These days are defined by pain and poverty,
Though my cup of insights forever overflows
Into this world and fills, as it spills unto itself,
The void where my purpose and dignity,
Once steady and sound, found a foundation.
The world sure can take a lot
From the little I have to offer,
And the world sure has taken a lot, indeed;

…But just be patient, for on that a lot a whole ‘nother world will grow;

And it will be yours for the making-

Cultivate it well…

The heat of eternal wonderment is almost too much to bear…
