Sometimes when I’m feeling small
and dealing with hurts and struggles,
I remember what someone once told me.
STUDY THE TREE
Notice how TALL it stands.
How proud it is to be a tree.
In spite of what it faces,
It grows stronger each day.
it’s well grounded
with roots reaching deep.
And it knows it’s no use
trying to be a tree it isn’t.
It’s simply content to be
the tree it was meant to be.
Sometimes it stands in a group,
but it can survive
even it it has to stand alone.
It knows it’s unique
It knows it has beauty.
It knows it has something to offer….
Be it shade from the sun
or climbing and having fun,
or hosting creatures great and small.
It stands firm. IT STANDS TALL.
I can easily see
how valuable is the tree.
It’s example is a message to me.
So when I’m dealing with struggles
And feeling small,
I’ll rememember the tree and I will
