Poem by Cynthia Martin
Plant Your Seeds
You hold the knowledge of life to feed generations of people created by you and me.
Humanity grows strong within our family tree.
The apple you bite holds the seeds.
One apple has a purpose and meets our needs.
God gave us a prosperity cycle. Our foods are blessed to be recycled.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, you see
Open our vision to infinite possibilities.
Our destiny is waiting on purposeful activity.
Prepare the right environment, prepare to succeed.
Eliminate the food disparity.
Bow down on bended knees, anywhere will do.
Mother earth will comfort you.
Release the sacred seeds into magical soil. Sunshine and rain will keep the score.
Our job duties are to water and weed. Add a little compost and admire with glee.
We have the power to make a difference, choose what you focus on, pay attention.
We will not be hungry in a nation of plenty. We have to stop listening to the invisible enemies.
I challenge you all to take heed and bravely live by this creed.
Simply plant your seeds.
