Latern Tree

The shade from the elegant tree
Will always protect and shadow me
For the leaves collected, become nature's blanket for life
To only find itself sheltered without strife
Blended with the dirt from the earth in such a unique way
Causes the isolation to become lost, to slowly decay
Memories become imprinted and its age identified by its rings
Trees become more than things
They symbolize our yearning to be free
Yet, as our loyalty is kept intact by its roots, not loose debris
Man attempts to shorten our days on earth by cheating
Our hunger is satisfied through healthy eating
Crimes no longer will prevail this way
As the light from the sun will create an ever-lasting light everyday
