YOU’RE

TREE OF LIFE


Life is like a tree,

where you stand is your eternal awareness of life, love and grace.

Your rings make the record of memories and chosen paths,

all spiraling to your creation


As everybody is unique,

there is never a tree alike. For your roots and leaves make

the recorded thoughts and feeling of new days and old nights.


When the fall comes it’s time for a better

prospective, better ideas and possibility to start a new and fix the old. As

you stand your ground your old thoughts will fall, as they travel through the

wind, maybe somebody will find a different prospective.

As other leaves lay on the ground they will wither away making richer gravel for new ideas.


As your roots grow,

and you get older, you will still be young, as for when you die your gavel is still rich,
a new seed will be born in your soil, making a better person and
sharing an old soul.

The circle of life
will forever be, as you influence generations, they may not know you, but you know them, as you were part of their creation as they created you.

You are very very very welcome!! :D Honestly, after reading the first few lines I couldn't stopl reading! Ha. And I loved it because it has such a wonderful meaning. I am never going to look at autumn the same way (I love when trees are green so I kinda dislike atumn and winter). But these lines:

your old thoughts will fall as they travel throught the wind...

They make me look at things a whole new way.

I wish more people would sign in and comment on everyone's poems. That way we'd know what we are doing right or wrong. I'm sure that if other people see your work they'll love it!! So keep on writing! You have a bright future ahead of you :D

i know this is gonna sound cliche but wat ever. i can't explain my reaction w/ words! THIS POEM TRULY TRULY SPOKE TO MY HEART!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH.. I feel like how you describe the tree beeing there in just one place with its root in just one place... it's just so awesome.

From my experience I've moved alot from place to place and well although I move and go back to same place, same roads, i feel as though my home is really inside my body. I am the only one who changes over time, my thought and feelings..

Thankyou so much for sharing this poem :D <3

*if you have any time what so ever I would totally appreciate it if you can comment on any 1 of my poems thkyou.
