Ellie belfiglio


I am a tree that is uprooted;

And placed in another spot to grow.

The new earth is fresh and rich;

But my life is just not the same.

I am left to grow a while, only to be-

Uprooted again for somewhere else.

With each change, just a little further away,

I grow all the more a stranger.

Each time the tree moves,

Tries to pull it together.

Until only a miracle can branch out again!

The Changes

They do their duties!

Blooming in spring, shading in summer;

Shedding in fall, standing barren in winter.

There are names in my trunk.

There are places, people, and hearts with arrows.

There are long last memories,

Forgotten with each move!! …
