Life of a Tree

Seed is sprouting
Life has sprung
Breaking from the earth
Seasons pass
Ever growing
Tall and proud you stand
Roots are planted
Branches reaching
Toward the heaven’s sun
Home to many
Birds of flight
And creatures on the land
Winds are blowing
Storms are raging
As your branches bend
Canyon’s calling
You grasp tighter
To the Mother land
Rain is pouring
Dirt’s eroding
Your trunk begins to break
Now you’re falling
Can you make it
And bridge the other side
Wind is pushing
Branches reaching
You have reached your goal
Animals crossing
Birds are singing
Your destiny fulfilled
