Why Must It Be So?

by stewart

My heart cries out: why must it be so?

The flower petal decays and the seed gently falls onto the earth.

Slowly, the seed burrows into the dirt reaching for nutrients and protection;

Over time, combining with different elements:

Straining to bring forth another flower.


In the spring sunshine, the flower’s fragrance opens to the wind

And the meadow again shares in a timeless dance.

O man, you and this flower are forever joined;

Brothers and sisters of the Eternal Cycle

Of Hope, Oneness and Renewal.


O spiritual traveler, why be sad?

Tomorrow you will again lift up your arms

And celebrate in the glorious sunshine:

Calling all manner of creatures

To join your timeless celebration of rebirth.
