Totem

Within both of us grows a tree
Whose leaves are emotions

Its seeds formed of time
Its trunk embodies our essence

Roots in the earth run deep
An exterior rough of devotion

The two revered and feared
An unending dream in motion

Outwardly may shed tears
These trees, obligated to be cut

Letting go for a dream unfulfilled
Though inwardly, between emotion

We share a versatility of the heart
An underground energy explosion

This poem was made by myself and Lisa.
