The Struggle

May 15, 2011
At first beneath the darkness I am put
To grow and try to set root
I try for eons, so it may seem
As I reach for the refreshing beam
Once I break into the open
Within a day myself is soaking
Each day the older I get
Set back, is the fate, I will have met
As the warmth above gives me my power
And refreshing as the day's ending shower
In the end I have but one fate
From which I can never escape
This life escape, I can not from this class
I am but a single blade of grass
