I started out from somewhere small

As that’s how many do.

And from the right love and nourishment I flourished and I grew.

So small at first,

Yet willing and brave,

Adventure is the direction I’d sway.

However fate decided, Against my wishes,

My curse was forever to stay.

 

I stretched and reached

In all directions.

Persistence is the key?

But no matter what

I was still stuck.

Persistence? I guess not for me.

 

How misleading it is to see those around us

And believe we are one in the same.

Yes we breathe

Yes our heart beats

We all live

That’s true

But when we can’t keep up

Who’s to blame?

We were cut from different cloth,

Built from different bricks,

We sailed on different shores,

You’re healthy while I’m sick.

 

And if you asked me to fly?

I’d tell you my roots won’t allow it. Unlike the birds,

The ground is my best fit.

I learned that the hard way.

When I reach, I just grow.

I can’t move as I wish

But I have talents below.

I’ve weathered many storms,

I’ve breathed through numerous floods,

I have bark,

I have leaves,

I flourish without flesh and blood.

 

But if you asked a cloud?

They ask for the ground.

For their whole life the sky

Is the only place they’re found.

Our substances are different

We can’t be asked of the same.

I guess humankind is still figuring that out.

We are all much more complicated than a name.
