Grow back eventually.
Kind of like us.
Taking a few steps back to leap forward even higher than where you were at originally,
Leaving behind bits and pieces of ourselves,
What we used to be.
Whatever is necessary to change.
No matter how many leaves fall,
Their trunk is set in place until the very moment they’re cut down.
We cut down the same trees we’ve planted,
To plant new ones that fit your picture in present time…
