Rooted

Author: Annie Reyes

Year: Sophomore at Greenville College

 

Rooted

She resembled an oak tree.
Tethered by the seasons that carved their initials unto its trunk.
Not once shaken by the brutality of a windstorm, nor moved by the flowers that grew beside it.
She kept still while the world ran around in circles.
Voluntarily planted and masterfully rooted into the depths of the ground.
—The Voice in My Head
