The Life of a Tree

By: Rosa Malinche


My ancestors are the trunk of the tree

My grandparents watered the tree

and preserved the beautiful growth of life that the tree gave

With that leaves grew

an abundance of fresh green leaves, lushful

it protected the caretakers from rain, cold and heat.

They lived in peace and created air

to life

Flowers grew

Many different colors of flowers and fruits ascended from the tree

It became a culture of love, life happiness, safety, stability, food

it was enough for the world to shine on.

It gave the world fresh air

giving it life everyday

It will never die

and when I pass away

it will still grow.
