If you are going through enormous struggles in your life, Please read this. An inspirational poem from Mother Nature's strength.

The birds call me their home,

using my fingers to build their nests.

My children become their food

while caterpillars nibble my nails.


I am nailed by humans to hang posters,

Surrounded by electrical lights

that don’t let me sleep -

To market their so-called businesses.


I stand under the scorching heat and in the rain 

while others take my shelter or scurry away.

Trying not to fall during merciless storms,

My body flooded by water;


If only I could run, but I can’t.

If only I could speak, but I can’t.

But I feel pain too, a silly tree.

Yet, my life has to go on


Till humans cut me down;

When they feel I’m useless.

Yet, I choose to be happy

even though I’m abused.


The joy of other creatures, makes me content.

I expect nothing even though I give.

Let my strength teach you 

that your life isn’t tough, dear Human!
