The Tree Remembers & How!


The Axe Forgets
The Tree Remembers.
…African Proverb

The surging pain of the strike
The slashing that seethes the soul.
The emotions deepen the wound
Such is the exacting nature of the hurt.

But learn you must
To gradually evolve
To let go the past
To grow anew
Arise from the scars
Forget you may not
But forgive you can!

Like the barks of the tree
Although scathed and bruised
By the cuts of the axe
Growing out new branches
And blossoming into spring
Flowering in fortitude…
Strengthening the Soul
Renewing the spirit

For the Bark of a Tree …
Tells the tale of sheer grit
And strength in the grounding.

Your life’s scars are patterns
Life has drawn on you
While you held ground.

Replenish &Regenerate. Only to bloom again in time!

Be proud of who you are.
You are amazing! !

    Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Khalil Gibran


    • Yes, indeed For I am right now reading your lovely blog shares at least the ones that are in English for now. But I am finding it difficult as somehow there is no option to read your entire blog in English, (the google translate that appears on your blog has all other languages except English) Can you guide me … as I look forward to reading your other interesting work that appear in Greek as well. And another great quote share from Gibran :))


  4. Reblogged this on and commented:
