Rooted in Reality

They all were born from the fruits of the same seed
yet separated accused of being different breeds.

One grew on the best of everything
safe from harm caused by anything.

The other grew on the toughest of conditions
learning to live in the way of the worldly creations.

It was a surprise for all those who
watched the growth of the two.

When they saw the first flowers of Spring
had come from the ones with the world’s training.

The flowers bloomed wildly on the plant outside of the fence
while for those on the inside, they were absent in attendance.

That is the way in life – only those who live outside the box
they are the ones who live out of the orthodox
it is the light in their successes never go “Nox*”.
