Lessons Learned

buttress_roots_3187730435

Takes time to bury

roots that seek a place to hold

Struggle feeds wisdom

Memories as fierce storms rage

urge tender saplings to bend

 

Resilience rewards

even the weak sapling with

a strong foundation

Roots grow, given enough time

to create mighty forests
