Break or Bend

Darkest night, the tempest rages

Violent winds upon the shore

Mighty Oak and Willow bracing

Morning light reveals the score

 

Staunchly stood the Oak resisting

Any change from status quo

Willow swayed and rode the current

Bowing to the greater force

 

Steadfast Oak sustained much damage

Branches snapped that would not bend

Willow’s tired leaves discarded

Healthy limbs, a place for growth

 

Change occurs, how will you answer?

Fight to keep your comfort zone?

Ride the thermals to new heights?

Break or bend, your life, your choice.
