Seed Essay

1125 words - 5 pages

A sudden jerk woke Luke from his sleep; his chest felt sore from another pummeling that Henry, the school bully, gave him the day before. A humble and withdrawn boy, Luke was viewed as a pushover by all the other students. It did not help that he was only five-five and a scrawny stick, weighing a mere 120 pounds. Luke felt that he had no purpose in life and was living day by day not knowing why he was studying or why he was living. However, that morning he felt smaller than usual. Luke knew something was wrong; he called for his mom, but there was no reply. He tried to summon his parents again, still to no avail. Luke climbed out of bed, more so rolled out of bed and onto the floor with his chest still beating in pain. Suddenly, a strong breeze from his left carried him through the air and out the window.He landed outside in a deep puddle that came from last night’s rainfall. As he tried to roll to his upright position, he glanced at his reflection from the puddle, and he noticed a strange change in his appearance – in fact, he was skeptical whether it was even him. Luke began to panic; his body became drenched in sweat and miry rainwater. Suddenly, his eyes closed and the world had begun to spin. When he regained control, he found himself embedded in what appeared to be fertile soil. I’m no longer human, Luke thought. It was true, he was now a mustard seed. This was unbelievable; he went from being a low-life outcast that everyone hated and harassed to an even more humiliating, shameful, and worthless mustard seed.

He was on the brink of despair; how could he transform into something more inferior than what he used to be, how was it even possible? Luke contemplated, how did I change – was it something I ate? Regardless, the fact of the matter remained – he was a seed, and he needed food. Through all the sorrow and dejection, Luke tried to be optimistic and keep his hope and faith. A couple of days passed as Luke pondered about his life in the fertile soil of the front yard’s garden, and on the third day he felt a tingling sensation. He was blossoming. Must’ve been my tears that triggered the auxin release, assumed Luke. From a tiny mustard seed, Luke began to grow rapidly. In a matter of weeks he had become a strong, mature tree. He had a wide, round trunk and thick, long branches.Still, Luke was discouraged by the fact that he was unable to retain a human appearance and his purpose in life was still mysterious to him. Even as a tree, he grieved over his appearance because the feeling of inferiority remained. As time passed, he started to realize that he had become a prominent figure for many people and animals. His first interactions as a plant, or vegetation (as he’d call himself), was with squirrels. In Luke’s neighborhood, there was a stray dog that harassed all the smaller animals, especially the squirrels. On a particular...
