I am certain that in every fallow place, new life is waiting
to be born anew. And more astonishing yet, that new life will come
whether one wills it or not.
One may try to uproot it each time,
but each time it will re-root and re-found itself again.
New seed will fly in on the wind,
and it will keep arriving,
giving many chances for change of heart, return of heart, mending of heart,
and for choosing life again And at long last — of all this I am certain.
