A New Thing

Born into this life in spring
The seed was all it ever needed to be.
But the seasons changed, the winds turning against it’s face-
As the seed was suddenly falling
Stripped from it’s familiar place

Falling into the unknown below
landing hard upon the floor
The seed lay cracked and exposed
as the seasons change once more

Dark clouds bring a heavy storms,
As the seed suffers through times of woe
And Buried alive in the cold, wet ground-
It finally breaks – letting go.

But the pain of breaking brings a new thing forth
As maybe, it was destined to break all along
And in the midst of this dark, broken place
Hope stirs into a song

Now believing all the forces that have come against it
Have been used to bring it right where it lay-
And in this blind, fractured state of being,
It finds faith in this new day

Although it can see nothing,
Light calls from up above
Stirring the song of hope within
As faith grows into roots of love

Knowing it will never be a seed again
This new thing rises; growing for the unseen light
Finding strength from it’s own blind faith
It presses on in all it’s might

And just when things seemed darkest
It breaks through the ground in it’s new form
Resting in the light shining down upon it-
A desire fulfilled- the tree of life has been born

Now every wind that blows, and every storm that follows
The tree remembers the journey it’s faced
Rooting deeper into the place where death became love
It can never be stripped from this place

The tree grows higher from every season faced
It’s transformation cannot be undone
And in the beauty of spring again
The Tree of Life blossoms in the Light of the Son.
