sidewalk crack… Toni L.A. Cross

my momma once told me
“bloom where you’re planted”
well, I fell down in
a sidewalk crack
and I keep tryin’
to reach the sunbeams
to touch the cloud swirls
and breathe in moon dust
but I can’t reach
from where I’m planted
and my roots are achin’
from stretchin’ so far

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    I like this poem a lot. In fact, it inspired me. I hope you don’t mind…

    Just you wait, my little friend.
    How big you’ll be by summer’s end!
    God has hidden all you need
    Deep inside that tiny seed.
    The strength you’ll get from the sun and rain
    Will help you get through this growing pain.
    And don’t forget when you want to give in:
    In life vs. obstacles – life can win.
    Roots can conquer the hardest stuff.
    Even concrete ain’t strong enough.
