A tree; A bare tree.

No green leaves,
No gentle breeze.
No shade to rest,
No cozy nest.
A tree nevertheless.

No special crown,
Branches gone.
No flowers or fruits, 
But glad for the roots. 
A tree nevertheless.

Trunk under water,
Got nothing to alter. 
Half wet, half dry,
Somewhat bold, somewhat shy.
A tree nevertheless.

Faith deep in the bark, 
Embracing the dark.
Silent and stoic,
Still a seed of frolic.
A tree nevertheless.

A bird in sight,
A bird with wings!
A bird that sings!
The Sun is blazing away,
Miracles are on their way!

The Power of the Written Word

"Each of us has a deep-seated need to reciprocate favors, regardless of whether the quid pro quo is on par with one another. Each of us has a deep-seated need to maintain an internally consistent view of who we are as individuals."

"Apparently, the simple act of writing something down, no matter how innocuous, becomes our perspective. We behave—and change our beliefs, accordingly—to satisfy a need to remain consistent with what we write"
