Family Tree by Leighton Gammage

Each branch has a name

Each names carries a story

Whether it bears

Pain or Glory

There is the Owl

Who lives in the tree






all you see

There                    are birds

Who call the branches their home

They will abandon it time and time again

But never forget where they’re from

Then we have the ants

With questionable morals

But if their home is in danger

They are not afraid to quarrel

Finally the flower

Delicately               attached to

The                                     leaves

So do not exploit them

For they can come and go with a gentle breeze

Go out and be with a tree

Grasp the ancestry

And observe the family
