Bloody Tree

The seed falls,

It must fall,

Giving way to life,

For in it lies hope.

Softened in the soil,

Feel the warmth,

Life come forth,

Seed of life arise.

Face the dangers that wait,

To choke, cut, crucify.

Survive the womb, the school yard jungle.

Survive the free way, beat cancer.

But death, your grip is cold!

Oh tree, bloody tree,

Source of life,

Hope.

The seed falls,

To the ground it falls.

It must fall,

To bring forth life.

The seed falls,

It must fall,

Giving way to life.

For in you

Lies hope.
