Favorite Quote:
you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have


The tree stood strong and tall
Proud was he of having roots so deep

Wind and rain beat at him,
He only waved
Water said goodbye,
Others wilted while he reached down
Getting soaked

Thwack! Thwack! Thwack!
Feeling sharp pains in his side
Wind and rain never dealt
Cutting many years of growth

"Timber!", He hears
And just like his pride,
He fell


The author's comments:
this piece is more or less describing my "fall". nothing used to bother me, but like the poem says, like my pride i fell.
