destiny tatum


a tree


a tree that once stood alone
a tree that was unstable
and not very strong

a tree that didnt have much of a chance
for a tree for noone did understand

a tree that was so affraid to let go
for that reason
that tree never learned to grow

a tree that never felt the warmth of the sun
or made shadows in the moon
for a tree who could seem to never
blossom into something new

a tree with branches that snaped
with thunderstorms and hurricanes
beating on its back

a tree that never growed up to be all it could be
i wonder what was holding these tree back from
its dreams
