• Just because I smile,
    doesn't mean I'm okay.
    I try to laugh and play along,
    but inside I decay.

    I sit here with my branches wide,
    shading you from pain.
    I keep you cool when all is hot,
    I keep you dry from rain.

    My roots is all I have to stand,
    even when alone.
    You can slash me down all you want
    your thought cuts to the bone.

    Even when the animals inside me,
    come out to play or fight.
    I will be there everytime,
    with you day and night.

    This doesn't stop what I feel,
    as you play underneath my leaves.
    I smile on the outside,
    but alas, I'm a tree.
