A Lovely Poem to Remind Us of Our Growth

I came across the loveliest of poems:

The Forest

One day when you wake up,

you will find that you’ve become a forest.

You’ve grown roots and found strength in them

that no one thought you had.

You have become stronger and more beautiful,

full of life giving qualities.

You have learned to take all the negativity around you

and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing.

A host of wild creatures live inside you

and you call them stories.

A variety of beautiful birds nest inside your mind

and you call them memories.

You have become an incredible

self sustaining thing of epic proportions.

And you should be so proud of yourself,

of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.
