I Grow Tall

Passing through the woods, I saw a tree,
Standing tall with fruits ripe and leaves green
Mighty was  its long trunk
Uniqueness was in its being different from junk.

My abode was planned there,
The tree had a happy sight as I was near
Happiness turned into tears as it grew dark
Which dropped down like a diamond off the bark

Late in the sleepy night , the tree gave a whisper,
Wishing to tell a tale faster and quicker
Be a diamond not the coal said the tree
For the air around you is lot more free.

Rise till the stars, as I am now weak,
The woods around me have made me smell reek
The powers I had will now be yours
For I will be dead and there will be no remorse.

The dawn arrived with a moment of loss,
I dropped a tear or two with my fists close
The years passed and now I stand tall 
With the light restored and life too small
