I'm the oak,

Tall and held firm

On what I believed

And how I grew up.

 

But one day,

It fell to the ground

In a horrid storm

That howled as I hit the dirt.

 

I moved,

It moved.

It fell,

I fell.

 

But one day,

Someone came along

And planted us back up

To the high place we used

To always dominate.
