A man is planting a forest.
One seed after another, year after year
a lifeless, colorless wasteland turns green,
slowly because green takes time.
He works hard. But he's hardly rich.
(according to many.)
Yet, he produces soulful wealth,
abundance for the innocents.
Elephants, rhinos, insects galore
run, romp, crawl, fly, their appreciation
glowing from their wild existence.
A human(simply)being can enrich the world.
If we plant seeds in the wastelands
we see along our days,
verdant forests will grow there too.
