The Tree of Life Spits Cosmos

This tree is standing still

The branches slowly crack

The zephyr pushes back and forth

It pushes me aside

I’ve planted this tree to admire

To admire its fragility

When it falls, I fall

When a leaf falls, apart of me dies

Take away from this being

I hope it doesn’t break

Because when it does

I fall along with it

I watch it fall apart

Like a broken mirror

Its beauty I watch

This cool chill beckons me

Reminds me not to forget

The trouble past and the inevitable future

Reminds me of who I am

Or who I should be

I watch the tree, so still

And then, it falls apart
