If I was a tree I don’t know
if I’d grow so big as to not fit in the
forest without standing out so
conspicuously that everyone always
looked at me when they walked by,
I was so noticeable.
So, I might consider growing to
just ‘average’ height so I’d
blend in and be a part of the
forest & feel like I belonged to
something bigger than myself.
Sometimes, I’ve been watered so
intensively and been planted in
the best sun spot that my growing
took off into the sky unrestricted
I was destined, determined to be
the tallest, widest, most dense,
beautiful tree in the forest.
No one could come up to my
height & join my primo
Still in all, I was still a tree
and just because I was big
didn’t mean there wasn’t
a place for me in the
I’ll wait, happily growing
bigger & see who sits in my
shade, climbs my branches
for a better view and puts me
in their photographs the most.
