Uprooted !

 

I'm a Tree

I'm a Tree that could never grow roots deep into the Earth. I flew with the wind and landed in places far and wide. It waS the same as a seed and when I was a plant. Always uprooted and replanted. I didn't wither when the drought hit hard on my face. When I drowned in the flood of tears, my leaves managed to breathe. I laughed with the children when they pulled my ears and teased at my tears. I am still a tree uprooted and replanted, every now and then! There I smell the air, feel the wind, plunge into the soil, raise my arm heavenward and wonder at the Wonderland! I see life, I see death, I move on when I am sad. I do not make things happen, I cannot, I'm a Tree. Despite odds I grew, a life full of adventure; thrilled at the heights and the depths of fligh,. held tightly to my breath, Keep breathing! I am alive so I am a Tree! Hope you enjoyed breathing as a Tree!

Trees, the lungs of the world! Lovely metaphor for human life, too.

Keep breathing and growing until you become the tree the seed wanted to be.
