A tree with healthy roots will flourish.
A tree without, will wither and die.
The same may be said of anything;
the root is the soul of the tree,
the root is the heart of the flower,
the rain, the life spring of the river,
the source, the breathing core of civilization.
When we confront the knowledge of this
with the root of ourselves
we realize there is no alternative
but to strengthen blood's derivation
so we might grow
out of our seeking.
