Which Way Do I Go ?
This is the story of my life
People walk to fast
I am trying to catch up but noone will slow up
Soon you are out of sight and I have to choose left ,no right
So I begin to walk and I think I made the right choice
Then I realize I have made a mistake
I am lost
What do I do now ?
Turn around and start again
But that was hours ago and then I would still be lost but at the beginning
I know I will ask this tree
I am lost can you help me ?
I am a tree don't you know trees don't talk
I am lost
I had friends and they are not here and I am trying to find them
If they are friends why are they not here ?
Because they walk too fast or I walked too slow
I am a tree I don't walk so I can't help you
You might of seen them walk by this way
I don't know what they look like ?
So how could I tell you if I seen them
They are my age and we were laughing and joking
How many friends am I looking for ?
With two friends couldn't you of at least kept one of them ?
Then you wouldn't be lost would you ?
We were all together and I stopped to look at something
What did you see ?
I seen a bird I have never seen before
What did the bird look like ?
It was rainbow colored and made the most wonderful sounds
Why not ask the bird where your friends are ?
The bird flew away
You don't make friends easy do you ?
No I mean the bird was not my friend
Then you left your friends for a bird you don't even know
I am not sure I want to be your friend
How do I know that you won't leave me for another tree ?
Ofcourse I am going to leave you I am looking for my friends
Then I can not tell you if I seen your friends because you are not my friend
I can be your friend
Yes don't you think we kind of are friends now
You are helping me aren't you ?
That is what friends do
But I want to get back to my friends and then I will come back to see you another time
mmmmmmmm let me think
You are telling me you are going to leave me to find your friends
We will still be friends even though we are not together
So why don't you stay with me and leave your friends
They will always be your friends too
I can not believe it
I just want to find my friends
Was one wearing a blue shirt and the other one a red sweatshirt
Yes,that was them where did they go ?
Why didn't you say so ?
They are my friends and they walk by me every day
They sometimes sit under me and get cool in the shade
They talk to me and say nice things like..
Your so big I would love to climb on you and make you into a tree house
Where I could come every day
We could have so much fun
I would bring many friends with me and you would never be lonely
We would play music and dance
I will have to ask my father if he could help
It will be the best tree house ever
You never say nice things like that to me
Now I know why your friends left you ?
You are not a good friend
My friends and I came out into the woods looking for the best tree to make a tree house
Friends don't keep secrets from friends ?
Why didn't you tell me if I was your friend?
Well you weren't my friend then
So I am only your friend when you need help ?
Next thing I hear voices and my two friends were yelling to me
There you are ?
My father is going to help us build the tree house
But first we have to go home for lunch
I have to say good bye to my friend the tree first
Trees don't talk
I think you have been in the sun too long
We have to go
I really did hear the tree talk ?
A tree as a friend now I have heard everything
