A Thousand Years From Now

A seed from which sprouts came out

Became a tiny plant that kept growing as days go by

Turned into an enormous tree that had so many branches

Lived a thousand years…

I see a man

He had children

Saw his grandchildren

Great grandchildren he was blessed

Great grandchildren had families of their own

The family kept growing

Too many branches now

Some feel close to each other

While some are estranged from one another

Nevertheless, they all came out from that one tiny seed

Connected by blood flowing under their veins….

I am a seed

Shall have my own big tree

Thoughts and love I send for my future branches….

To Connect

To really get to know someone,

You have to see his/her soul

To see the soul, you have to get through the mind

Read his/her thoughts

Then hear the heart

Listen to what it says

Know its dreams, hopes, and even fears,

What makes it happy and sad

Then the souls are no longer an acquaintance
