I had to take myself outside today.
I was feeling too much like a human. (No offense.)
I have been reading about politics and watching the television.
I don’t understand people. (No offense.)
I don’t believe I am human. I think a mistake was made.
I had to get outside on this dark, wet day to find some hope.
I found it.
I came back in with muddy shoes, pants, hands and camera.(Sorry Honey.)
My hope comes from the ground,
Not from my family, friends, books or the television.(I love you but…No offense.)
My hope is green.
I had to see that things were still growing and pushing up out of the earth.
Even in cold. Even in darkness.
If a little plant can do it, so can I.
