Sapling

I have nothing to offer
Let me follow you still
I have all to learn
Do not consider me
A parasite

You have nothing to lose
Bear with me just a little more
I have everything to gain
Do not despise me
I pray

You have everything to bolster
Let me lean on you
I have nothing to hold on to
My weakness is drawn
To your sturdiness

You have everything to flourish
Let me from you be nourished
I have nothing to suckle on
Can I from your sap
Be nurtured?

You have nothing to fear
Let me hide under your shadow
I have everything to make me cower
Let me draw strength
From you.

  1. I’m digging this poem. Has this to do with an infant suckling from mommas breasts? Because it sure sounds like it. Your poems make sense die.
