Poetry can evoke and describe emotion in such an eloquent way. This beautiful verse reminds us how we can emulate the grace, strength and beauty of a tree.
I am a tree which stands by the path you tread.
If you can learn something from me, stay awhile.
I cannot take you my way because my roots are in my own piece of ground and my branches reach up to my own personal sky.
If you wish to lean against me for a time and warm in the sun which filters through my leaves, then share my stillness and become one with me.
But do not stay too long, or part of yourself will become lost within me.
Do not take one of my branches to use as a prop for even I am unaware of which are strong or weak.
In looking at me, reflect on what you didn’t know and make it your own truth, I will not impede the path you tread but I hope I have helped to make your journey worthwhile.
