From the perspective of a tree or a human, you decide.


Every time I move I find
In my aching spine.
They are filled with teeming life,
And I am the father of the mothers
deep inside me.
And I am a warden of the shelter
For the lost.

And they know that I am broken,
And their nests fill my limbs
With little birds and other things,
But I don't mind them.
'Cause when they live inside me
I feel like I am purpose
From a seed.

Moving slow I feel a breeze
Wisp past my rooted feet
I dream geometry
Provide all I can be.

And it calms me to believe
That I have purpose.
And I feel naturally
Like I am worthless

And I fill my limbs with creatures
Because they love what I can be
And I am purpose.
I'm their passion from a seed
But I am nothing
To me.
