Even Trees Bleed

That little sapling seed.
I saw it with my eyes
that even trees bleed
I’d have sworn it should have died.
It didn’t just have a flesh wound.
It’s mighty trunk was missing a limb.
But a new, little sprig was beginning to sprout,
where the mighty branch should have been.
Even a little sprig or seed
can grow into mighty oaks,
despite the residual ways they bleed
and so can broken folks.
