I wrote this peom becuase of the song I'm sleeping under the dead tree. I've also written this to prove that going your own path and going on someone elses paths will lead you to a new fate. My sister Viviana was the one who inspired me. I love you http://www.booksie.com/fallennachos

I'm sleeping under the dead tree


The blur of the constant gossip,

The pain from the awful rumors.

The forgiveness that everyone takes.

Yet they can never understand they are being used.


Drifting in and out of reality.

You try and find your way through the maze.

Yet you never find an exit.

You'll be trapped in this hell hole forever.


Flowing with the breeze,

You fly so high you can't think straight.

You fall back down and land on our ass.

Because you were so high, you can't get back down.


Your new way of life.

Your new desire.

You swim and swim through the sea,

But all you find is the same sea of fish.


Your leaves were once blooming,

They swirl with rhythm of the wind howling.

The crisp autumn leaves fall and thrive.

They leave you behind and never come back.


I've fallen, hit rock bottom.

I've searched for a sacred place.

Where one will not be bothered.

Where one can think.

Where one can dream and thrive.


I've fallen asleep under the dead tree.
