An Alternate Reality

Grass Never Gives Up

Grass is tenacious.
Grass is brave.
Grass never gives up.

It gets squashed, trampled, sliced off.
It gets fertilized and poisoned,
Over and over.

It gets frozen, baked, drown,
and still it dares to lift its head
in defiance.

Yellow, brown, green,
black and blue,
it rises again.

What an amazing
thing grass is…
an example for us all.
