They Let Their Roots Run Deep

from They Let Their Roots Run Deep by TONGUE



"They Let Their Roots Run Deep" was recorded in Feb. 2019.


As tall as trees do these beings stand
But firmly rooted in arid soils
Hardly able to sustain
Anything that resembles life

As no light shines through their crowns
And no winds rustle their leaves
They let loose their seeds
To more hopeful grounds

But never again, they know
Will they themselves move

As lost as ships in starless oceans
Are these beings, navigating
Through the blackness, anchorless

As though on a mission
Of any consequence

Their anchors have not been lost,
No – they have never existed

Not because they are not needed,
No – But because there are no harbours
In which to cast them
