The Bristle Cone Pine

While wandering thru the forest pines A lesson I found true The ones that live on the valley floor the newest of the new grow protected with all it needs with water flowing through But high above on rocks jagged edge the little Bristlecone Pine peeks through, without key nutrients, its life is defined as meekest on the peak preview Though raging storms and lightning strikes and snow and ice ensue The Bristlecone looks to Heaven's glance, with God in step pulls through The little tree has learned survivals grit and the moral of its life is key Be willing to stand even tough roads ahead though you may see them as your last The Bristlecone reminds us to get up with courage take And forget about the past. A step at a time you will renew, keep faith within yourself Believe in your Creator, he will show you and teach you the rest. Look forward to tomorrows joy be steady and keep your pace, and while you work without you knowing You will scale the challenges you face You didn’t notice the imbued spirit That was gained as you traveled through Prayer with your Creator was all you needed to do to displace the stubborn rock of change to an abundant more glorious you.
