trees






PHOTOS BY ME

trees
stand
tall
proud
they have
a lesson
to teach us
what do the say?
whether you are
tall
or
short
you should
stand tall
reach
don't be afraid
to show your
true self
though it might need
trimming
or changing
it won't begin
unless
you start it
by showing
who you really
are
stand tall
reach down deeply
with your roots
enjoy
your natural beauty
don't be envious
of others
of flowers
or stars
the sky
the clouds
you have
your own beauty
though you might tower
though you might cower
you are beautiful
so stand tall
reach
show your
true self

trees
everyone
in a way
is a tree
though sometimes
we droop
under the weight
of the world
all we need
is a little Sun
a little of that Person's love
that One above
and we'll flourish
reaching towards the sky
proudly
beautifully
amazingly
perfectly
so stand tall
show your true self
it might need
to change
but don't be afraid
there's Someone
here to help
stand tall
you are beautiful
people might say
things that hurt
but they aren't true
they don't matter
you are
beautiful
you are
amazing
perfect
just the way
you are

trees
they have
such an amazing
story to tell all of us
their rings
have stories
what would they say
if they could speak?
i think
they would have tales
of good things
bad things
things that happened
so many years ago
and how, maybe
they thought
quietly
to themselves
"if only
they stood tall
and they trusted
in the One above"
so stand tall
and trust
you are beautiful
don't ever doubt
there is Someone
watching out
for you
you are
beautiful
amazing
perfect
don't listen
to lies
listen to
the truth
you are
beautiful
