Sarah read this poem in a session the other night and I liked it so thought I would share it with you all. Let us know what you think in the comments 🙂
Roots of inner values, like rings within a tree; and Wings of independence to seek my destiny.
Roots to hold forever to keep me safe and strong, To let me know you love me, when I’ve done something wrong;
To show me by example, and helps me learn to choose, To take those actions every day to win instead of lose.
Just be there when I need you, to tell me it’s all right, To face my fear of falling when I test my wings in flight;
Don’t make my life too easy, it’s better if I try, And fail and get back up myself, so I can learn to fly.
If I had two wishes, and two were all I had, And they could just be granted, by my Mom and Dad;
I wouldn’t ask for money or any store-bought things.
The greatest gifts I’d ask for are simply Roots and Wings.
