the child & the tree.

The last tree of spring
to grow leaves on its branches
is considered a late bloomer,
much like the child
who chooses words and actions carefully
while everyone seems to think
there is something wrong with her.

On the contrary,
the roots of this tree-
much like the child-
run deeper than the rest,
for they both doing everything
in their own time.
