I hope you like the simple riddles. Tips would be welcome if they're too obvious :)

I often lay beside my kind.

I provide a source of life.

I myself am life.

I often travel great distances.

Please don't discard me.

What am I?

Is it

a seed?


I often lay beside my kind.

You spread them out when you plant them.

I provide a source of life.

You get a plant if you sow the seed.

I myself am life.

It's alive (the embryo?)

I often travel great distances.

It gets carried by the wind, by animals, etc.

Please don't discard me.

You could plant it instead of tossing it.

  • $\begingroup$ This is the answer. I intended to have the answer to either be "a fruit" or "a seed". I liked your water suggestion too. It fits the description well :) $\endgroup$ – User2910293 May 9 '15 at 15:07

A person (or animal)

fits every line.

I often lay beside my kind.

Well ... use your (dirty?) imagination for this line.

I provide a source of life.

People create/'provide' new living beings (babies).

I myself am life.

People are alive.

I often travel great distances.

Sometimes they go all the way round the world.

Please don't discard me.

Discarding a person does sound like a nasty thing to do!

  • $\begingroup$ +1 Yet again I like the variation of your answers :). I think my riddles are too open to different answers haha :D Oh and uhh, "lay beside" and "lay with". I first wrote "lay with", left that out intentionally to reduce that from happening, but it still did :P $\endgroup$ – User2910293 May 9 '15 at 15:07
