Grown

Does the seed not crack?
Does the seedling not stretch and distort?

Does the bud not burst to unfurl and does it not whimper as it does so?

Does autumn not wither leaves to dust?

Does winter not burn and summer not scorch? 

Does spring not bring painful storms causing the tree to grip the ground harder and dive deeper for safety?

Then darling I ask you honestly…

…what is growth and life without the painful things?
