Tree of Life

Document
Cover Image

there is a tree.


there is a tree, and you cling to it,


because –


well. because.


 


grandmother, grandfather, the uncle who you never met,


they wait for you. above.


concealed by dense layers of leaves.


 


rays of love, life and laughter fracture the darkness that envelops you


but fingers and feet, calloused from splinters threaten to send you spiralling


down


down


down to the roots.


you draw them out with your teeth,


but they never fully heal.


 


 


there is a tree.


there is a tree, and beyond the leaves,


there is light.


 


you climb.
