We cling to everything we previously had
Unable to let go, despite the fact that it doesn't belong to us anymore.
Often, we invested so much time and effort on becoming who we are
That we can't believe is no longer true.
Everything around us changes, but we try to stay the same.
Deep inside us we are afraid that changes are going to take away who we are
We don't quite see that a tree is still a tree, even when it loses its leaves every single year.
Transformation happens all over, on our body, mind, soul and planet
It's a constant renewal that happens all around
And with every shift something comes in and something goes out.
But we try to hold that exchange
Forgetting that if we don't let the roots grow we might never see the tree
And that the tree only become tall and robust after many winters.
We think that holding up to our believes is what keep us being who we are
But who we really are?
Are we the leaves that die every single year
Or are we the tree that is growing stronger with every change.
