I don’t like this tree of memories that lives inside my soul and grows everyday: branches entwined into each other, mystified, and many of them naked like you and I. Many of them haven’t seen green in a long time now. Some of them have stunted growth; where as some of them are continually growing as if there’s no one there to stop them, almost out of control and growing wilder by the day. Some branches are soft, dampened by pure water that falls down from coloured eyes and are broken easily, hurting you so much that the wound bleeds eternally. Some branches are stubborn, thick and deep rooted, and there is not an axe in the world that can chop them. They remind you of what happened and what went on before you saw the other side of life. They are constant reminders of earlier scars and they are forever intensifying.

I hate trees but I don’t hate nature.

i guess no one likes the bad memories but then the tree also has a lot of good ones that i want to cherish for the rest of my life... life isnt all black and white honey!!.. enough shades of gray to make a person go mad!!.. but nice post.. a new perspective to something as common as a tree..
