#15 – Tree

A Tree with strong roots laughs at storms… – Malay Proverb


Started its life by growing on another

Leaning to gain its strength from one another

It sprouted with beauty

And jealousy surrounded

Trampled and crushed

But roots deepened

Though it grew with the countless others

It made sure it stood matchless

Nurtured with the love of every kind

It learned to survive in the storms that came

For it danced beautifully in the wind and rain

Not once or twice but countless times

Toughened and strengthened with every pain

The time came when a man met the tree

Used it for its shade

For countless of sleep

Until a day when the trunk of the tree

Brought jealousy in the eyes of men

For greediness played its fate

And wealth covered his eyes

The jealousy of its riches brought it down

Poisoned little by little every time

And there fell the branches one by one

With the swift stride of the axes in motion

Brought down the fall of the banyan tree.

Note: The banyan tree here is depicted the life of J.Jayalalitha the EX Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
