β€œTHE FONDEST WISH FOR A GIVING ROLE. ” a poem, based on Shel Silverstein’s β€œThe Giving Tree.”

I don’t want to, (pause)
Be β€œTheBoy;” (pause)
I want to Be,

The one who gives and shows kind love; that is: The Giving Tree,

But Something hits me pretty hard, and TheBoy then I become,
And I get mad and feel so weak and then I’m just a bum,

Who takes advantage of the kindnesses of GoodTrees in my town,


And[Also]Overseas there are many trees;

as a boy, I wear a frown
Because I see myself As The Boy exploiting lovely trees;


They’re so beautiful in kind Sacrifice;

I beg The Heavens, please:

Whatever it takes.

Please let me give and lovingly do.

I’m sure The Boy role must be played, but I wish to give to YOU,


What I can β€œfor others, Lord,”

for

I’m des perate to feel,


That I am not Just A BIG taker,


Feeling like a heel.

Please, Dear Lord, if you can hear,


But honestly,

my fondest wish is that you might adorn,


ME with

The Role of Tree, (pause) although

sometimes I might take,


But PLEASE

let ME give much MUCH more;

From Me Can A tree You Make?

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
