Pale skies ignore the vibrant branches greeting them
waving as the wind brushes past without acknowledging its abrasiveness
and this is a lesson Mother Nature
teaches us about life everyday
that others can be ignorant and callous
when offered a semblance of
your kindness, your charity
but this doesn't mean you must be filled with dismay
Do you see the trees falling to the ground, defeated with anguish?
They stand tall and proud and continue to live on,
for yet another day.
