Unknown Stuggles

I started

as a seed

small and strong

 

I was planted

watered

and given sunlight

but I was planted

later than usual

 

A few months later

the cold wind came

hurting me slowly

I didn’t know if

I would survive

 

When spring came

I knew I survived

growing

old and wise

 

Summer came

I felt strong

and free

even for

a young tree

 

By the time

the next winter came

I was stronger

I knew how to survive

 

I was ready

for what

was to be

thrown

at  me

 

I could

survive

and I knew

I would
