The Willow

A lonesome tree
Perched at the crossroads
Against the blue sky
Branches reaching up
Towards the light that shines so bright
Reaching deep into the Earth
Seeking water to quench its thirst.

To the right or to the left?
The Willow asks
Of the Wind
To move forwards or backwards?
The Willow asks
Of the Wind

Directions, I do not know
Intentions, I do know
Wherever I go, my heart follows
Whatever I seek, my heart follows
Said the Wind.

Do not fear
If plunging down makes
Your heart skip a beat
Do not fear if soaring above makes
You forget the world beneath
Do not fear if turning right means
You make a wrong
And do not fear if turning left makes
Your journey even long,
Said the Wind.

The wind went by
The Willow rustled its leaves
Shedding those dried and yellow
The Willow took a breather
And stared at the crossroads once more
I shall not live in this sorrow,
Cause it’ll be a better day tomorrow
In this life I chose
The best, I hope
The worst, I expect
For it is my life,
My happiness.

Reaching deep into the Earth
Seeking water to quench its thirst.
Branches reaching up
Towards the light that shines so bright
Against the blue sky
Perched at the crossroads
A lonesome tree
