ROOTS

Everyone saw the tree

It was huge

Dry and ugly

It blocked the beautiful view ahead

Right there in the middle of the other beautiful trees

It kept growing bigger and bigger

Time passed by

The other trees got smaller

But the dry tree grew bigger

It was killing everything around it

It looked so dead

Yet it grew so big

No one knew why

But the evil glared in their faces

No one saw its roots

Buried deep within the soil

Large roots that sucked up life

Evil roots spreading underneath the soil

Poisoning everything around it

Everyone saw the tree

But no one saw its roots

No one saw the roots of bitterness
