A small child wandered through the forest

Looking for hope, hungry for a bit of faith

That something existed bigger than her.

She needed to find a reason for being.

She leaned against a giant tree

And put her arms around its trunk.

She closed her eyes and tried to rest.


After an hour had passed, she noticed

The bark of the tree was rough. 

Insects scurried back and forth

In between the ridges in the bark.

The tree provided shelter and food

For the insects passing by.


She breathed in the cool air

And embraced the solitude that 

Surrounded her in the forest glade.

A bird flew above her head

And perched on the tree’s branches.

Nearby, came the chirps from a nest

Hidden in a canopy of leaves and twigs.

Again, this tree was providing shelter

For many of the creatures in the forest.


The child could feel the energy coming

From the heart and soul of the tree.

She could feel its unique vibrations

Enter her body and expand her soul,

Until she too felt as one with the tree.


“I feel renewed,” she cried.

“This energy is bigger than me.

I too, am made by God’s hand

To provide support for those

In need of renewal and hope.”

“All of us are  part of the whole,”

She said.
