I am the tree of life,

holding everyone up.

My branches are getting so heavy because of

all the misfortune

that befalls people in life.

There is so much hatred, violence, and pain;

my leaves are falling off.

There is so much saddness, loss, and despair;

my branches are breaking off.

Look at all these broken branches,

this is what I have become!

I'm a bare broken stump

that can support no one.

My downward spiral can only reflect on you.

So many people's lives are split in two.
