Fear of the Forest

Most are scared

of big trees

and flying away

in the breeze.

While others venture

to unknowns

before finding

what is home.

The forest invites

those happy to try

and stays alive

when they fly.

The forest is dense

and can be empty

and the choice to enter

is all so tempting.

For life to be lived

the fear must pass

because in the forest

time doesn’t last.
