Tree

a tree stands still and tall
be it rain, spring or snowfall
let there be sun, moon or stars in the sky
let there be flowers, birds or fruits in the branch
a tree weathers all and bears all
till there’s undying spirit inside 
it relies on none, feeds everyone 
Is self reliance the route for everyone 

Roots

Have you seen a tree running for cover
be it rain or forest fire that brings it down
is it the faith of deep roots to shoot again
is it ever possible to suppress the shine 
of the spirit of life that glows from within
