A Bit of Earth

Give me this bit of earth,

That I may grow my hopes and dreams.

I do not ask for the world,

To be placed selfishly upon my lap.

Just a space where I may take root and grow,

Beneath heaven and upon rich soil and stone.

Let me take a bit of earth,

And create a paradise.

That others may benefit within this place,

And so can remind them of the goodness of their hearts.

-M.E. InkOwl
