Mama Nature Told Me There’d Be Days Like This

Overheard in the dirt, two flower seeds talking:

“Does this suck or what?”

“It’ll get better.”

“I don’t see how. It’s dark; it’s damp; it’s cold. Bugs crawling all over the place.”

“When we reach the sun—”

“What’s this sun you keep harping on?”

“Some roots told me about it.”

“And you believe it? Grow up, man. Great: another load of fertilizer just got dumped on us.”

“Everything happens for a reason.”

“Please. We’re rotting in the ground, or haven’t you noticed?”

“This isn’t all there is to us. Wait and see. Once we get to the other side, folks will be happy to see us. We will be beautiful.”

“Beautiful? Have you looked at yourself lately? Oh, swell: now I’m cracking open! Tell me again how this is a good thing.”

“Life’s a bitch, and then you bloom.”

“Have you lost your mind?”

“Go to the light.”

“Yeah, right…”
