[Mission 2022] InstaMotivation@9pm – Mighty Oak By Daniel Baker


If the mighty oak could speak the words

Of the times that it’s been tried,

It’d speak about growing roots

Instead of how it died.


It’d say that it was strong enough

And stood the test of time.

Instead of falling to the ground,

It stood and held its line.


It’d speak about lightning strikes

And wind that cracked its core.

Though the dirt had softened,

It stood and took some more.


Though the tree bares scars

Of the times that it’s been struck,

All the other trees around

Gazed in pure awestruck.


Its roots dug deep and powerful.

No way it’d hit the ground.

The story of the mighty oak

Is one that is profound.
