I have begun to feel connected

To the soil

To the land

To the fruits of the land

I feel the soil struck in my fingernails

And I smile

It has helped me to feel less anxious

Helped me to focus

Helped me to concentrate

Helped me to breathe easy

Breathe with ease

Provided me with a focus

Concentrate with what is around me

I smile

When I see the fruits of my labour grow

I smile

When I pick the fruits of my labour

Knowing how hard the journey has been

From small seeds

From small steps

To where I am today
