This tree is me

tree1

This tree is me

on the days
when the darkness
suddenly
inexplicably
overtakes the light

poisoning
an otherwise healthy day
healthy life

This tree was me
for five years of my life
that seemed like twenty

I’m thankful
that, unlike this tree,
I have had
and continue to have
help and hope
to be restored, mended
to grow again
