See this tree

See this tree, this old tree
branches torn off by the wind
seasons tried to kill his spirit
but the leaves kept coming
and new branches kept growing
for so long, he never gave up.
My hope is a dying tree.

Watch this bird flying, circling
tired wings fighting the wind
seasons tried to kill his spirit
but he kept on flying
and new birds flew with him
always, never giving up.
My hope is a flying bird.
