You Are A Tree, Not an Acorn

Don’t forget
That you are a tree
Roots open across the earth
Flowers sprouting along your limbs
Skeleton thickening in the winters
So why are you watching the acorns
Burying themselves below
Only just having the potential
To grow
The first break is
A cloudy frozen scape
But you wait for them
To crack soil
To force their way through
Why do you pause for them
The truth is that
Even when they find their way up
They will never catch up to you
So look for the sun
Keep growing
You’ll meet another tree
That blooms like you
