Here is something I wrote:

There is this idea -

that you can plant a seed into a perons's mind.

And although it may never grow into anything - it is still there, sleeping.

But when the right time comes, it may not flourish into beautiful blossoms, or rise tall above the canopy.

It may just be a little grass.

The things I make -

I want them to be valuable in some way.

And I am not exactly sure how,

but a wise man once told me,

have faith.
