Seven Billion Trees

Seven Billion Trees

Sometimes I think to myself
People
And trees
Are a lot alike

Trees start out
As just a little sapling
And grow
Grow grow grow
They come in all shapes and sizes
And are very sturdy
But not all the time

A trees leaves
Don’t make it beautiful

Bare trees have been stripped down
Down to the roots
Behind its eyes
We see what they really are
And isn’t that the most beautiful

Then there are trees that are leafed all year round
But isn’t that just the smile that covers the frown

Trees fascinate me
Are people as strong as trees?
Can people survive bare?
We cover up who we really are
With our leaves?

Don’t your branches long to touch the sky?
