False Hope - Poem by Godfrey Morris

A tree was planted watered by the rain
watered through these hands
until it grew, then grew till grown
and still I see no fruit
I wait and no treet to have
I have been decieved
that's why I decided to cut down that tree

    You may have cut it down too soon, sometimes all that is required is patience and understanding. (Report) Reply

    So true, people like trees sometimes give nothing, only take. (Report) Reply
