Tall and protecting, I stand.
By various others, individual others, i am protected.
And to these others, i branch out to.
To these others, i also support.
A Towering Tree, I Am.

Secure and sturdy, i stand.
Although, significant flaws that create individuality, i have.
In my own way, i have beauty.
A Towering Tree, I Am.

Worn and torn, i stand.
A result by the toll taken by my outside surroundings.
Worn and torn, i may be.
However,
In the soil of my beliefs and values,
Will i be firmly planted.
A Towering Tree, I Am.
