TREES THAT BEND NEVER BREAK

TREES THAT BEND NEVER BREAK

A Poem by M. L. F.

At the heart of the hilltop -
newly draped in night's cold,
stands a tree whose bared branches -
are now weathered yet bold.
Through the wages of trials,
through the wind, and soon snow -
shall the tree keep on standing,
even though harsh winds groan.
It will bend all the branches -
drag each one to the ground.
It will force shrill cries from them,
as it blasts through in howls.
But that tree will keep standing.
Hell cannot knock it down.
It will rise from near ashes -
Standing plush, tall, and proud.
Let the floods try to drown it -
Oh those floods - how they try..
But a force field enshrouds it -
rising up to the skies.
Let all eyes who will see this -
stare and learn from its faith,
for the tree knows what we should -
Trees that bend, never break...

A lovely poem, Misty.

Certainly a metaphor itself for those of us who have endured through many trials and sufferings.

Despite all that nature and humanity can throw at this tree, it will still stand proud and tall in the face of the onslaughts. Just as we do.

A very thoughtful piece. One exuding quiet strength and a firm moral compass.

Great message. Life will beat us bloody, but if we get back up, we'll be stronger than ever. There's a lot of strength behind your words.
