You fell

Like an acorn you fell on the hard sidewalk

To be stepped on

ran over and kicked around

while your peers blossom

embraced by the warm soil of their parents

You won’t cry for help

You just lay there in apathy

Motionless and forgotten

But there is yet time

You are broken but something is still intact

I’m sure

I believe in you

You are beautiful and precious

Can I pick you up?

Give you warmth and nourishment

just for a while

Until you sprout

and strive towards the sky as a sapling

Until you grow

and crush the tarmac with your oaken roots
