Barely Rooted

Barely rooted
when they ripped you
from the ground
No one will know
the fruit
that you would bear
Senseless violence
left a hole
where hope 
was planted
The muddled mind
of another
cleared the land
Your fullness lives
in the Kingdom
yet to come
But we long
to have you incomplete 
In this place
growing up
and casting shadows
on the wall
You barely rooted
when they ripped you
from the ground
