An Incantation for Growth

May I break free
of the confines of this modern world.
May I grow in defiance
like the week in cracks of stone.
May I grow to inconvenience
those who would control me.
Like the trees sending roots
through their foundations, pipes, and roads.
May I stay as wild as the rose,
And may my thorns subdue
those who would deny me the beauty that is mine.
