The Fallen Tree

Ahead

A storm raging

In it

A tree falls

Brown roots sent heavenward

.

Ahead

Seeing the rage

It falls

The girl

Over and over

.

Once that mighty tree cracked

It fell down once

Even if it was propped back up

It was weak

.

Once the girl lost her courage

She fell into helplessness

And even if brought out of the storm

Her courage was gone

.

Who can say

If time will mend the tree?

If time will mend the girl?
