Tree of Life- Poem
I wrote this poem when I was on vacation. I was sitting outside in complete silence and noticed this beautiful tree. Luckily I had my notebook because these words just popped in my head! It is a poem about the tree yes; but, it is also about the confidence and pride that seems to be lacking in so many peoples lives.
Old and wise gnarled by age
Blow in the wind and calm thy rage
Mourn the passing of yet another day
And weep because things will never change
Standing proud with unwavering beauty
True to thyself with roots planted firmly
Limbs stretched reaching toward the sky
No reason to be insecure no reason to be shy
Watching the world unfold in all its glory -never a word
The secrets of life are kept safely inside- never to be heard
The sunset can be seen through those dancing leafs
As the sky turns purple, orange, and pink
Steadfast you stand upright you will stay
Because there truly is no other way
As the day passes into the still of night
And the moons glow is the only light
We look up in wonder- yet never see
The world as it was meant to be
