A dead tree
laying on the side
of a lonely road
almost dead,
withered, and in pain
trying to live
or feigning death
who knows…
either way, he looks sad!

The way how the wind
on his once strong crown
and the way how his roots
cling, on that soft soil
not letting go,
never letting go…

It gives you strength
this sight,
and an unquenchable desire
to move on, to go on
with tears in your eyes
and with branches cut off
just like that tree
who lays,
on the side of that road
weak, and at the same time
so strong
never letting go,
always holding on!
