The Tree

since I've been here in the shadow of a tree

symbolizing life and growth

I feel like this is the place I always belonged to

feeling the strength and joy of this tree

which is also me

if life flows inside this creature and juices run in its veins

how can I watch all this like an observer outside this world ?

how can I feel apart from it ?

only if I imagine a scene like this in some corner of my mind

then I can't see and won't be able to smell and experience

I would just play my little game of thoughts

and unreal pictures in my mind

the tree is not to see

- a symbol is not to touch -

just to guide you to the next crossroad

where the future starts

the tree is inside of me

its branches - my nerves

its leaves - my feelings

its roots - my love
