For want of a seed the shoot was lost.
For want of a shoot the plant was lost.
For want of a plant the flower was lost.
For want of a flower the bee was lost.
For want of a bee the plant was lost.
For want of a plant the food was lost.
For want of a meal we were lost.
For want of us the world was lost.

For care of seed the shoot did grow.
For care of a shoot the plant did grow.
For care of a plant the flower did grow.
For care of a flower the bee did grow
For care of a bee the plant did grow.
For care of a plant, the food did grow.
For care of a meal we did grow.
For care of us the world did grow.

It probably doesn’t seem as if it could possibly be this simply, yet it is. When we become caregivers to all life all life will thrive. When we are overloads with no care except for ourselves, nothing will thrive.
