I’m the Future!

I’m the seed growing into the future;
The Earth feeds me; the sun bathes me;
the air keeps me alive;
don’t take them away from me!

My survival depends on the elements
that surround me everyday.
I want to be a life that glows every morning
and the star that shines each night.

I’m the seed growing into the future;
words feed me; love bathes me;
parents keep me alive;
don’t take them away from me!

I’m the seed growing into the future;
ideas feed me, kindness bathes me;
free speech keeps me alive;
don’t take them away from me!

I’m the seed growing into the future;
freedom feeds me; peace bathes me;
rights keep me alive;
don’t take them away from me!
