Tree of Life

In the darkness
I’ll meet my makers
lungs filled with new beginnings
chocking on your innocence
empty thoughts float away
burdened by life’s decay
tendrils of worry
growing slowly
releasing despair
shoots of love spring forth
blooming in the warmth
of a secret heart
branches of
awe and apprehension
twist together
reaching up in wonder
straining in hunger
while gully’s of proud ferns
cover saplings of wisdom
unfurling weakly
under the great shade
of the tree of life.
