The Story of My Leaves


I am like a tree
I take a while to grow but once I get settled I am strong
And I am changing constantly, I am like a tree

I am a tree
I can support and help lots of life
but people can easily take advantage of me
I sway and dance wherever the wind takes me, I am a tree

I look perfectly fine outside
but you never see the rotting and damaged inside
Created by the things that hurt me

The hard words of the wind push me
The selfish fungus consumes me from the inside
And the fast water erodes my very foundation

Once I fall, I fall hard
The very earth beneath me shakes

But then I transform and grow into a new tree
Stronger, taller, a more improved version of myself

I am forever changing and growing,I am a tree
