The tree has seen my many forms, And questions,
And heard the people,
It has seen the me who was a child.
And heard me ask do they see me?
And heard my mom answer,
I see you!
It has seen the half teen me.
And heard me ask do they value me?
And heard my friend answer,
I value you!
It has seen the teen me.
And heard me ask do they need me?
And heard the boy answer ,
I need you!
And now it sees the almost woman me.
And hears me ask why I need them,
to see me,
to value me?
And the tree answers,
Allowing my Self to answer me.
I’ve been trying to get to you,
But the mom, friend, and boy
Were there to shield you.
It is because you haven’t learned to love me,
