“Tree! Ever again”


I will stand strong and sound,

Also in loud thunders of darkest clouds,

Providing you shades, shelters, and food

Even if I am old,

I will still be giving,

Shedding myself into dry wood,

Burn me to keep you warm,

And cozy in winters.

I might be used as your home decor,

Or a cupboard,

In your bedroom furniture,

Or I get carved into an instrument,

Playing your favorite music,

And, I will die, to make new things rise.

But, I will always be there,

Showering and serving,

Nature and mankind,

Watching you happy,

Growing, living, loving,

Laughing carefree,

This is how I want to live again,

How I want to be…

I was born a tree,

And I would always be…

A Tree! Ever again

    1. Thank you Digvijay for praising these words. Actually they are inspired by someone’s work. I was scrolling through somebody’s blog and found a picture of a tree where the person wished to be a tree. And i thought of writing something for a tree describing their life and journey. After all they are always standing for us for all our hard times, protecting us, they even die.
