The Tree
Bhisma Upreti
 
 
 
People see me standing alone
 
Wind, sunshine
landslides, floods
and like people's poisonous black selfishness
In the midst of many adversities
it is very difficult to stand alone
power alone
lonely aspiration
and, effort alone
where can strongly stand?
 
I know
I have many roots
Roots from under the ground
how they have supported me on the ground!
 
People see me standing alone
 
But where am I alone?
My strength and power
are my roots.
