{Living Like The Trees}

the trees
bend as if
they have
lived
their long
careful
lives for this
one moment

and yet
they do not
have a
choice

the plasticity
of their
trunks
makes them
unable to
resist
so
they agree

oh how I
wish I could
live like
a tree

bending to
my callings
as if
I had a
choice.
