Adam Redfern


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 night did understand,

A tree that was so afraid 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 snapped,
With thunderstorms and hurricanes
beating on its back

A tree that never grew up to be all it could be,
I wonder what was holding this tree back from
its dreams?
