Tree silhouette with roots Stock Photo - 5660939A mighty wind blew night and day.

It stole the oak tree’s leaves away,

Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark

Until the oak was tired and stark.

 

But still the oak tree held its ground

While other trees fell all around.

The weary wind gave up and spoke,

«How can  you still be standing , Oak?»

The oak tree said, «I know that you»

Can break each branch of mine in two,

Carry every leaf away,

Shake my limbs, and make me sway.

But I have roots stretched in the earth,

Crowing stronger since my birth.

You’ll never touch them, for you see,

They are the deepest part of me.

Until today, I wasn’t sure

Of just how much I could endure.

But now I’ve found, with thanks to you,

I’m stronger than I ever knew».


Especially now, try to remember

that you’re stronger than any problem you encounter

or any disappointment life will bring.
