    Growing Rings

    When I was young
    just a sapling I remember
    there were times were
    I felt so unimportant
    times I was so sick
    from everyone's shadow
    that I would wilt almost
    to the ground days
    I survived it seems only
    because of those taller
    we're also fighting
    for a place in the light
    and would unknowingly
    allow the rays to reach me
    Now that I stand dominate
    in my age my memories
    of the past aren't so dark
    and frightened as I remember
    back when I was just
    a sapling.
