Into The Thick of It

by Hasini Peyyala

For those who without a family

On the ground there was a seed

Trapped by the thickets

Of fear and greed

A hand reached down through the thick of it

“Who are you? What have you done?” the seed murmured

“Given you a home”, said the stranger

So the seed landed gently into a field of fruits flowered

Warmth ignited, and no more was the danger

Water cascaded down to the roots

The soil gifted nutrients daily

Hands picked weeds where they stood

The seed blossomed into a magnificent lady
