Bitter seeds did Grow

Bitter seeds did grow.
My hardened heart was soiled.
The weeds began to take root,
clouding my eyes with gloom.
It took over the flowering garden,
Causing it to wither in darkness.
How do bitter seeds grow?
I don’t think I will fully know.
What I do know is this,
no one wants bitterness.
For bitter seeds do grow,
where you wanted a home.

Hi, I am R.D. Jess. I am a christian writer and postpartum doula. My relationship with my God is not a religion but a state of who I am. I love being there for others and find that writing the hard truth is the best way to make people feel less alone.
