An Aging Meristem

A seedling has planted,

Hoping for survival.

It feeds and absorbs,

Knowing life.

First bud of leaf,

Prayers answered.

A strong stalk, a tall growth,

Life has been full.

Year upon year, procreation,

Has become fashion.

Year after year, its

Children picked clean;

From those who believe

Life as one way.

A life taken advantage of–

Surrounding Gadflys,

Or one of care.

Cut short at the appendix.
