When you feel weak,
Picture yourself as a tree.
Imagine beginning as a seed:
small, and of little substance.
Picture yourself growing:
day by day, month by month, year by year.
Experience by experience.
You are a sequoia. Grand, but non-imposing.
Round bodied and beautiful.
You continue to grow, from a sapling,
to a three-hundred and eleven foot tree.
Your skin is thick, strong; you can endure the rain.
You can endure the ice.
You can endure the snow.
You are majestic.
And one of a kind.
You are an awe-inspiring beauty, and
you can survive anything.
