The Tree

The Tree

1 min 24.1K 1 min 24.1K

Like an old man it stood

Depriving all leaves it looked crude.


It must have lived from a long time

Tired of storms and impediments of life.


Its boughs had lost all the lustre

It must have been home to many creatures.


It had no life left in it

Like an old exhausted man it stood still.


Life must have been too cruel 

Yet it was grounded to the soil.


No one loved it anymore

All that it bore left it long ago.


It was useless to Mankind 

Without any shade it had become spined.


Entwined in the arms of nature

It stood as a hope bearer.


How hopeless man becomes

When everyone leaves him!


No children whom he had nurture

Would come forward to take his care.


The old tree was even left

Even no tendrils in it's boughs crept. 


Yet it had the strength 

To fight in this world till it's last breath.


But I was enchanted by it's spirit 

It stood like a pillar of Hope in a lonely street.


We humans shouldn't get depressed as impediments of life cross our way

We need to keep the tree of Hope alive in our hearts and chase the snag away.


Even we are abandoned by life

We need to keep patience and fight back with strife.
