Bend like the trees

When the storm approaches
Bend like the trees

You are strong
Resilient
Flexible
And you will survive

You will be different
A little bent out of shape
But beautiful
In a different way

When the storm arrives
Lean into the loneliness
The unknown spaces
The fear

For if you resist
And try to fight it
You will crack
Splinter
And fall

Bend like the trees when the storm arrives
For there are other trees around you
And they will shelter you
Protect you
Keep you safe

The storm will pass
As it always does
The sun will shine
As it always does

And you will be left standing
