Stand Firm. Be Tall.
The tree so beautiful and elegant.
Standing firm and strong.
No matter how the wind pushes,
How cold and direct the wind presses up against the tree,
The tree will be firm.
Storms will wash through,
Battering and weakening the tree,
But it will not fall.
Thunder will clap by its ears,
Lightening will flash dangerously close.
The branches and limbs may bend or snap, but its core, its body stands tall.
The roots of the tree go deep.
They dive down into the Earth,
Twisting and turning all around.
The roots spreading through the ground like fires of a forest.
Roots that hold on tight when the wind comes around.
Roots that will not let the tree fall down.
The tree is nothing without the roots,
The tree could not stand without the roots.
Fruit of the tree would not grow without roots of the ground.
