A Poem – “Tree of Life”



My life is not dissimilar from a tree:


Roots – my childhood,


tangled, spreading out across the floor

but rotten to their very core.


A trunk – the inner part of me,


giving strength and ability to endure,

in a world that feels so very unsure.


Branches – my life now,


out to grasp the light and pull it in

to a heart prepared to give and receive again.


Leaves – my future,


allowing the light to help me grow,

to renew myself again and again,

as each new season begins.
