The Leafless Tree


Life - the life of my company started with an idea, much like planting a
seed that began the life of a single tree.

The tree slowly develops and occasionally produces a leaf, while all alone
primarily still a leafless tree.

The tree continues to grow and produce more leafs, this is quite indicative
of individual growth the makings of a vibrant tree.

Braving both fall and winter the tree remained leafless; however, prosperity
occurred during the spring and summer overshadowing what was
obviously a false weakness.

Prosperity revealed itself through the production of countless more leafs,
nature's demonstration of talent and commerce, the spectacle of a
completely leafed tree.

(The Leafless Tree poem represents both hope and a positive outlook on the struggles of entrepreneurs; from their humble beginnings to their rising
success stories in ultimately inferring 'never to give up.')

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
