Your roots are yours.

For what way might I cut you down if you stand tall, if you are a tree surly you will not fall. You nutrients you give earth have taken hold. Surly I have not seen your roots, as they are beneath you, they are the stronghold which you have to hold your life experience. It is not mine, but yours. I would not cut you down, are you sure that you have been flexible enough to weather all that’s around you? It is not me who has cut you down, but your own sight and decision of what it is you see. I’ll be there if only you allow me. The unless of life, is where you decide what you allow and what you do not, so decide if it was me who truly cut your branches and your trunk because it was bleeding, but if I did not grind out your trunk and dig out yours roots… as you’re only one who knows them to be true. I surely could not know the location to find them, unless you let me in. It’s not my decision but yours. I’ve lived enough to know that I have no intention of ravaging all that you are, only curious to see just how how you perceived it all. It’s not mine but yours, what’s mine is my experience and in yours… do you think I’m the one to take anything from you? Let’s count when it was, that, I decided to let you go, and not look back. But once. How many times did you decide not to seek me truly. I’d never had anyone truly seek me nor follow through to those things I said so can you blame me for not realizing that you would do all that we talked about? I’m sorry that my basis of understanding was from the depths of hell but that’s where I had lived, you couldn’t see, but that was the road I was on and it was hard to get back to you, and remember just how much I had to offer.

        Well you’re a very intriguing young lady! I’m glad you responded to me. I saw it’s been a while since you’ve posted but I like to throw some Hail Marys every now and then lol.

      4. Hahah that is fair, as do I! Shortly after this I created a anonymous poetry Insta, also just got a little bored of that. Among other creative projects just took up my time! Also, word press started to get a bit… disconnected or cold if you will. But I may just begin posting again, considering the superficiality of social media is starting to wear on me again. Lol creativity “full circle” 😏😅

        Well if you don’t post nothing I’m going to have to read your old posts over and over 😂

        I’m John, by the way. I feel like I have to explain myself to everyone I meet… so, I talk a lot and I’m socially awkward. Hopefully you don’t end up like several of my 9 followers and be silent because you’re anxious I’ll trap you into a conversation.

        I’m surprised I haven’t asked you if I’m bothering you yet. Or if I’m annoying. Or are you going to talk to me after today…

        About that… again, no offense. But I just met you. I don’t get the feeling you’re a bad person. But I’ve had some bad experiences in the past. I have to warm up to you.

        I’m sorry 🤦‍♂️
