They Say: Jordan Derksen

They say the man who cares for the trees,
will grow up with wisdom.
The man who cares for the earth,
will never go hungry.
The man who cares for the horse,
that plows his field
and carries him for long distances
if you treat him just right
the horse will stick around.
The man who can build a ship
that can discover the world
on the wind and the waves,
following the stars and
making water in a sea
you cannot drink from.
Living off the ocean takes skill.
There is such an abundance
it is equal to the stars in the sky.
