Beneath The Surface

gnarled tree

Ginormous and daunting
Grotesquely gnarled
Unbalanced and crooked

Surrounded by unequivocal beauty
Placid allure
Tactile comfort

Indignant !

Is this not what we all have felt?
Is this not how we have judged ourselves?

But wait !
Are we not all woven from the same cloth, the same dirt, the same chemical compositions?!

Has not the Maker granted
To each his time,
To each his aspirations,
To each his guiding force?


So see past the sense of sight
Feel past the sense of touch
Allow the heart to lead…

Gnarled or glittering
Strong or timid,
Feed the flow of kindness
And appreciate what truth lies beneath the surface.

Skin or bark!
