What Grows/Time To Be Free

Written by Michael Hysinger – michaelhysinger@yahoo.com

 

 

Thistles scatter in the wind – Born to die then live again

A seed unplanted will not grow - This is something you should know

As you look toward tomorrow

 

Stars are crying in the night - Weeping silent tears of light

As the night turns into day - They will slowly fade away

For they’ve looked upon your sorrow

 

What grows when we’re trapped within the darkness

What grows if we never plant the seed

What grows when we drown within our sorrow

We need to grow to be free

 

Colors paint a lonely sky - Then a seagull soars on by

And reflected in the waves - Where the colors long to stay

Is a silence softly churning

 

Waves are dancing on the shore - Before they roll to sea once more

After flowing through life’s course - We all merge back into the source

Bringing with us what we’re learning

 

What grows when we’re trapped within the darkness

What grows if we never plant the seed

What grows when we drown within our sorrow

We need to grow to be free

 

We grow when we walk beyond the shadows

We grow when we learn to sow the seed

We grow when we dance above the sorrow                     

Now it’s time to be free
