Be Like a Tree

Be Like a Tree..

By Apolinario Villalobos


A tree, though standing still

and on a windless day

with not even a rustling leaf

is still erect and majestic –

host to winged creatures

that in the sky frolic.


We can be like a tree

by being still and patient –

under a heavy burden

in times of challenges,

we should not waver

but strive for success!
