Branch that Never Breaks

Blowing in the wind it sways,
But never does it snap.
Strong, it endures with its bark,
Continually growing thicker, profounder.
Life produces people who do such things.

Life keeps going, growing deeper.
The fruit that the branch has to offer
Sculpts our universe, making it one wonderful place
That produces more fruitful people.
The chain continually moves on.
For time does not wait for such things,
It keeps running, sourly but sweetly at once.

As long as the wind is putting up obstacles
The branch, the humanity, will survive, thrive.
The people endure and outlast all struggle.
