No, heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you touch her and you feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love's completely real, so forget anything that you've heard
And live for the moment now

I used to be a seed.

I was warm and safe and covered

The dirt smelled like sunshine and fresh air

Things I would covet
I used to be a seashell

Soft and smooth and hidden in sand

I was protected from danger

With pebbles and ocean waves
Now I am better.
I am an August breeze

Carrying away paper airplanes and baby birds

Flying wherever I choose
I have gone from a seed to a sunflower

Standing proud and tall

Greedily soaking in light and oxygen
I have gone from wishing, and

hoping, and

asking, and

To taking, and

being, and

telling, and

absolutely loving the way I am.
I used to be a seed.
