My life is like rootsExperiences the flowers or weeds My life spreads, the leaves, the shootsRemain where they have fallen as seeds
Others come upon this essenceThat is left as I tread pastThey experience my roots, subconsciousMy actions towards them will always last
Let my roots be strong and kindLet the base be boldLet others know my mindBoth as they are young and old
Let the weeds be hidden by flowersLet the roots bear great treesLet my acceptance outstretch by powersThat encompass the ground, the air, the seas.
