Roots

Plant a tree
And I will be the roots
I will give up sunshine and reaching
I will sink into the mud
Cover my eyes and mouth with dirt
Stretch myself out to sustain you
The real and dirty work
That you cant see
Up there drifting in the breeze
I will be ugly for you
So you can be beautiful for the world
