Broken Tree


See this stump of a tree…
ravished before by a terrible storm,
It’s new shoots has grown big,
And now bearing again the sweetest flowers and fruits.

And so it is in life,
Terrible things do happen,
Causing painful memories and scaring,
Never to give up!

    Yes, as long as our roots are deep and strong enough, nothing can really break a tree. No one can't stop the growth of a tree, coz' parents have taught it to 'Be cheerful what may come' and keep doing good.
    No one is devoid of pain, but God should bless all of them with kind words of great people; as HE has supported me. Tq u all. A great 10+ for those encouraging words. (Report) Reply

    A tree never being useless, either serving fruits, sharing flowers, providing it shady place, a home for birds, or to care land from disasters, and even if it broken, it can be good for many things, i like this poem because i like when you bold the meaning, never to give up...it channel lot of strength and i have the tree's root now..i will be strong as what you said here, thanks SS_Soul (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
