Push Down Deep


Weigh a little more

Push into the soil, until your heels bind to roots

Push on Gravity

Stop floating,

Take a stance like all these other Palm trees

I need roots, to stem out of Somewhere,

To grow and reach upwards.

Only trees with strong roots reach the Sky,

Give birth to hands that reach up, grasp the Breeze

And Branches that can house Birds

Strength, which moves from the Roots
