The Vital Root

*This poem is dedicated to my family-what remains for me at the end of the day.


The Vital Root (For my family about my family)
by J.J. Morales

Like mother earth you comfort us
nourish and support
A sanctuary in this world
our land of love and hope
Miles of red earth and rich green fields
therein the vital root
Of all of those who've come before
and the seeds who've yet to bloom

A cradle in this fragile life
our unity creates
It guards our strength and innocence
these branches we outstretch
Firmly rooted, please remain
whatever soil there is
For when I've lost my way, my riches, and sometimes God
from your root I can be born again.
