One should be growing from roots to steady trunk
Then you can spread the strength into branches and reach out wide
Later the flowers grow, fall, and fly where the wind takes them
Someone said one should stay true and be who you are
But this who you are can be a multiple different “self”
Although one can be multiple different “self”
The importance of hold on to one at a time and grow steadily from the root
Can determine how wide the branches are going to reach out to the sky
and how far the little flowers going to travel in the wind
Someone says “Be who you are.” Someone says “Be who you want to be.”
I say these ideas are like roots and branches of a tree
They all are feeding the body with nutrition
One side from within
One side from the world out there
Which one is which? Don’t roots and branches look alike?
Overall, they are all from this tree. This healthy, steady tree.
