Tree LifeWhat a wonder to be throwninto the world on fertile groundin way of a seed to spring forth a treeIn the chance of a lifetimefighting to survive competing as a seedling and the right to be aliveUnder the Giants and the spruceUnder the oaks and the wonder of youthwith the competition of the family of seedsspringing forth to grow and become theirfull potentialAs some are weak and may not see the dayWhen those who are strong will repeat the new wayof nature to grow and know the ages in the ringsbringing history which wages on like battles of wars and saddles on horseto the rattles on cars and the matters that force usto fight for the life of the tree like the freeThey are as living as you or as methey see the skybreathe the air they show their brancheswith leaves and care fro the animalsthat hide their seeds for the winterThey see the seasons and are awareas the river which waterstheir roots sinking deeper into the groundand the truth we shall protect themnothing can take this away not thinking we need the woodto build not thinking we are liberalwithout the will to killWe thank the tree for being hereand planting the seed to bring forthas we revere
