i used to look at trees growing somewhere by themselves
without any other trees around
and think that they were sad.
i felt such sorrow
as i gazed upon these beings
without any other to keep them company.
how much greater must it be to live in the forest?
i have only begun to realize
that my inner beliefs
created a reflection of the world
that came with labels like being alone and sad.
i felt alone.
i was sad.
today i look at the tree in awe
it is alive.
it does not feel alone because it is connected with all.
for all i know, to any tree,
the world around it
is the forest
or even the tree itself
