“THE FONDEST WISH FOR A GIVING ROLE.” a poem, based on Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree.” January 4, 2020 (Saturday)

I don’t wantTo, (pause)
Be “TheBoy;” (pause)
I really want toBe,

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 andThen I’m just a bum,

Who takes advantage of the kindnesses of GoodTrees in my town,
And[Also]Overseas there are many trees; as aBoy I wear a frown,
Because I see myself AsTheBoy exploiting lovely trees;
They’re so lovely in kindSacrifice; 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 “for others, Lord,” forI’m des perate to feel,
That I am notJustA BIGtaker,
Feeling like a heel.

Please, Dear Lord, if you can hear,
Yes, I’veWishedIwasNeverBorn,
But honestly, my fondest wish is that you might adorn,
MEwith TheRole ofTree, (pause) although sometimes I might take,
But PLEASEletMEgive muchMUCHmore;

FromMe CanAtreeYouMake?

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)
