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 more for success!
