A tree does not know where its seed will take root.
A flower does not decide which bee will bear its fruit.
A mother cannot bring about a vision for her child,
no matter how she bends the truth.
A bird does not trust its sons forever to the nest.
A fox has not the weave with which to keep her daughter dressed.
A mother cannot promise funds or firmness of the future,
but these are not the sources of her rest.
A star will die in chaos without all sense of direction.
A night gives birth to morning but makes no vain prediction.
A mother knows not what tomorrow is,
but still she keeps conviction.
She believes beyond all vacuums,
because of patterns, hopes and hints
that there exists a stronger love
than she could provenance.
