Take a walk until you find a tree you identify with, then write a poem using the tree as a metaphor for yourself or your life.
Dark and mysterious, a calling face.
Smooth and beautiful but firm in its place.
Mixed colors, a mixed race.
Distinctive features, for a unique soul;
Always ready to grow.
Showing a one of a kind glow,
after letting all the pain go.
An inner bark that’s ready to mature,
Finally found it’s cure.
Eucalyptus me. Ready to be set free.
