We are all
Wounded children
Crushed petals
Stunted redwoods
Looking for the sun
Healing the wounds
Hoping to grow
Into worthiness

We all have wounds that prove what resilient survivalists we are.
Crushed petals give off essential oils and fragrant perfume... very often there are positive purposes that arise from negative circumstances.
A sapling might not look as astounding as the humongous redwood, but it bends in the storm and continues to gather strength and perseverance with each season. It's potential is actually even more astonishing then the full grown height that stays.
Every day the sun exists. Some try looking for it at night... and see it upon the Moon's face.
Some wounds heal quickly... some.. never. Healing, sometimes it is accepting...sometimes it requires intricate skilled medical skills... all shows just how indomitable the human body and spirit is.
We attained worthy the moment the cell split in two and the soul birthed into existence ... as uniquely... I .
Hope grows us. It suckles the soul from infancy to old age!
