(December / Manila Philippines)

Behind The Sneers

I had a big giant chokecherry tree
Last winter it fell like a clumsy twig
Today a seemingly strong person quit
As usual I had another outlandish epiphany

My tree was so sarcastic masquerading superiority
Staring down on me dominantly he jeers and sneers
When I thought I had picked up all the fallen leaves
One at a time he would dropp a leaf just to irritate me

Behind the laughter and the gibes
He has concealed his weak trunk
With his sardonic wit he prides
Yet all along he is bleeding inside

Everyday is challenge for me
Always channeling positive vibes
Once in a while I would throw in a glee
And discreetly pocket all the jibes
