A tree

A tree

A tree full of acorns that once were trees 
One drops to the ground where it germinates and seeds 

A year maybe goes by and a sapling you'll see
The weather will surround it with everything it needs and sunshine for photosynthesis 

As I contemplate the tree I see that humans are just acorns or trees 
All at different stages of an ever evolving scheme, never dying or living just wanting to be 

So when you see a tree or an acorn remember my poem because the tree becomes the acorn becomes the tree
