I gotta have roots before branches
to know who I am
before I know who I wanna be
and faith to take chances
to live like I see a place in this world for me.
Roots before branches. Oh how I love that. I too often forget that just because I can't see the roots doesn't mean they don't matter. They matter a whole lot. As I look around at the sturdy trees standing firm, I realize that they are depending on their roots to hold them up and care for them.
Roots before branches. I love the idea of being rooted in who I am and what I stand for before I bloom. The more I discovery who I am, the more I am able to stand firm in my roots, in my faith, in the truths I hold dear. My roots matter, they matter a whole lot. The deeper and stronger my roots are, the more sturdy my branches will become. I'll be better able to support others, love better, and be kinder.
there's always a seed
before there's a rose
the more that it rains
the more I will grow.
