So they thought a sleazy little wiz like you
Would stir a storm, like an emotional floodgate to pierce my heart?
Oh dear, my essence though perfumed with love
Cannot be easily tempered!
Have they not heard, at least perceived?
I’m similar to a mesquite tree, resilient in arid climates
My trunk connected to the General Sherman tree,
I’m the largest known living stem.
So although I may be shaken, but rest assured, I’m unmovable.
And, I am called the Baobab tree
My hollow spots are filled with life
For I am the equivalent of water.
With my leaves sizzled with healing
My seedpods enclosed with nutrients
I am compared to a caring mother.
I am the rainbow Eucalyptus
Among my siblings, my features are the most distinctive
My vibrant colored barks constantly shedding
Reveal my awe-inspiring gift to the visual world.
Yes, I am fascinating, stunning, Radiant, even angelic.
I am beauty. I am patient, strength, love, and light;
So, I will wait for you.
I will wait till your search for wisdom,
From the hill of self-discovery.
I will wait.
But, should you aspire another course
I just blew off your dust from my memory!!!
