   The Tree Poem

 

by

 

David Fox

 


   We are like trees.
   Some of us areas sturdy as tree trunks,
   others are as delicate as the leaves,
   and like the leaves,
   we are constantly changing
   making resolutions every New Year
   to start again, anew.
   Many of us like the  tree's    branches,            
   exploring different paths
   in this labyrinth we call life.
   As we grow older
   we are even more similar to the tree,
   each wrinkle representing
   another year of life
   like every every ring on a tree stump.
   If I can live even a fraction
   a tree has, I will know
   I've lived life to its fullest potential.
