Life is like a tree

Life is like a tree;
them, us, you and me,
open your mind
and you will see,
we are all connected.
We were born on the same day.....
separated by branches,

we have migrated away,
nature and the environment,
our bodies from the earth.

If it wasn't for water
we would still be dirt.
Our origin is a mystery,
we come from a magical seed,
we are of different colors,
but we are all the same breed...

Life is like a tree
as delicate as can be,
harm one of the branches
you harm the entire tree.

Life is like a tree
them, us, you and me
open up your mind
and you will see.

  6. There is so much in the poem, all of it truth. We have to have an open mind to understand and appreciate that we are all connected. I really like this. I did use your post on anger in my blog. May I some day use this poem as well? Maybe in a month or so.
