Tree Tale.

Tree Tale.

A Poem by Homason

An imagery of 'trees battle' with the wind. So whirl & turbulent yet the palm tree shall refuse to break. What life lessons can you depict such experience/encounter? Do you break down and cry?

Tree Tale!

Once I saw it tossed by the wind,
Every leave waved a-beg to the wind,
But it blew fiercely like whirl wind.

Twice I saw it come again,
Every leave bent in pain,
But they smiled in the rain.

Thrice I thought the tree's in trouble,
Every toss was swerving double,
But the leaves won't give up to fumble.

Once I saw it go away,
Every leave took its shape,
But it was me in the rain.

Author's Note

When you're up against such struggles that shatter all your dreams, and your hope has been crushed by satan's manifested scheme, do you give up?

the tree doesn't give up...just like humans who are pretty resilient...we bend but don't break.
a lot of life is windy with many severe storms...but if we are strong enough...we survive and flourish.
