"Wonder Why Weeping Willows Weep"
November 2, 2017
I have often wondered why the weeping willow cries
Could it be for the same reason that tears fall from my eyes?
Like the limbs of the willow, I was reaching for the sky
Then came the axe called life to cut me down before I received my prize
Cutting me at the core of the dreams that I had inside.
But, I shall survive this axe and boldly declare that this is not my end
Because I have other crosses to bear and so much life to lend
I refuse to fall to the ground never to rise again
Or weep like the willow, because me and life aint friends.
The blistering sun strikes the mountain...
