• 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
