Crooked Trees

I used to stand straight,
Firm and strong,
My limbs protected,
Unbreakable.

 

Until the wind came,
At first I stood tough,
But persist it did,
And I began to bend,
And bend,
And bend…

 

Now I stand crooked,
Waiting to snap.

In The Wind

Nature posing as life's onslaughts that are persisitently unrelenting. We may creak a bit, but never break! - like that poker game, we'll ante up when the deal is done. I like this poem very much (I don't say that a lot). Good one! Small letter count, big meaning index! :D

Thank you so much! I've found that sometimes it is better to just play the hand you're dealt.
