The Rose

by 1st Poet

I planted the seed but my tree would not grow
At night I watered it and still nothing came forth
So I decided to pray over it every night
Then one day I noticed a little leaf began to grow
The more I prayed the leafs came forth
Then one day I forgot to pray 
suddenly I noticed leaves falling away
So I fell on my knees and began to pray
Dear Lord please save my little tree
Help the roots bring forth roses this spring
That I may enjoy it's wondeful scent 
but my beautiful plant was still withering away
Now I was starting to doubt if God heard my prayer
So I decided to ask him again to help save my little tree
A voice answered and said where is your faith
Your prayers was answered the first time you asked
The roses are waiting on you to continue to pray
They were about to spring forth that day
