LIFE is a ROLLERCOASTER; buckle up, take a seat, and try to enjoy the ride!!!!!!!!


As Summer glows, my light shows
As Autumn prepares, my leaves change in despair
As Winter snows, my bark is froze
As Spring flings, my heart grows wings
As Fall crawls, my leaves bare it all
Your Beauty in any season, takes it all
My breath, my future, my life in time itself
Your yellowish white flowers, make me resemble power
Your bark, my body
Your branches, my arms
Your roots, my feet
Your flowers for seen, my everything in between
Filled with history, culture, life itself
Days don't go by without thinking of myself
My past, my future, my present tell it all
I am like a fortune teller, I can bare it all
with every step, I get stronger
with every mistake, I grow wiser
In the future I hope to see, your life intertwined with me


The author's comments:
I wrote this because of a tree I saw down the street. It has been there since I was a little girl and when I was coming home one day after school I looked up and saw that tree. It looked so beautiful from an angle, so I took a quick pic and sat down for a few minutes and started writing. I still pass that tree everyday and it's still the most inspiring place for me to visit and think about life.
This tree is everything to me, any hope it means something to you.
