Standing in front of the tall redwood trees,
by Jay P Narain
I look like a midget compared to the tree,
The trees are burnt, carved and hollowed for shelter,
they are still green and standing tall in posture.
I feel like a redwood tree,
I have been tormented and saddened by my emotions,
Still I feel like a giant overshadowing my misfortunes,
Sharing my thoughts and happiness with everyone around me.
Walking in the thick redwood grove, I feel the filtering sunshine,
The tall trees seem to reach and touch the blue sky,
They have been standing there for many centuries,
Giving us the fresh scented air and filling our heart with peace and tranquility.
I wish I could be like a redwood grove,
Aged with wisdom and sharing my thoughts,
If I could make this world happier for some one,
I would have filled my heart with joy in my life.
