Fortitude



Trampled
Under feet, carefully uprooted
Carelessly flicked

Expelled
From familiar grounds
Left to rot

Regenerate
Take roots, Sprout again
Grass and humans

  5. An apt analogy - the human will to survive under adverse conditions, nomadic, without base, but still setting up entire civilizations, like a blade of grass will take root even in sand and turn into a rolling grassland...
