  • The cycle of a tree teaches me the biggest lesson of life.

    A seed is planted which transforms into a stem followed by a bark which spread it's branches after.
    The branches produce leafs.
    Leafs change colors and are the most beautiful. They also start to fall off the tree.
    All leafs are fallen off the tree leaving the branches naked until next spring.

    I see the cycle of a tree like a life of a human being. We all are born. We all grow up. We all have our prime time. We all have big ups and big downs. But some of our downs are so bad that we find it tough to fight and stand up again. Some of us manage to come out strong and some of us end up finding joy in our own sorrow.

    The tree's life inspires me. Every winter it has the courage to stand strong and fights the weather. By spring it starts to produce it's beautiful leafs. Despite knowing that the leafs will fall off again, it doesn't give up. Why should we?
