Tree of Life

As a tree
Your roots hold you up and help you live a strong and healthy life,
If you thrive, they are happy,
Yet if your roots are surrounded by toxicity, branches of happiness may break,
falling into a pit of sadness,
Leading you into seasons of emotions,
and feelings of worthlessness
As a tree,
you may need to travel into the depths of your rooted sadness
To allow yourself to bear healthier fruits,
ridding your self of the rotting
You may seek change, but wont allow yourself to plunge towards it
and if that is so, then listen here
As a tree, You may not know how, or why your roots are unraveling into sorrow
Just know, you will heal with time
With hope and faith in cured weather
How you choose to blossom from that disparity is up to you,
You can choose to be living, fulfilled, and plentiful Or dying, broken, and finding your thoughts in decay
As a tree,
You can choose to dedicate your time to be a better you
Dedicating your years to providing life to others And if you are still feeling hollow inside,
Fear not, for your life is indeed truly meaningful, And you will soon find your light to strive
Never forget that you are not the only tree feeling leafless
and you will never be alone in the forest you call home
The roots of your pain will soon grow its way to happiness,
And your branches will soon be plentiful
