A fence post and a tree are both anchored in the earth. But they achieve it in totally different ways.
Is she the one - will she stay?
What do you see when you see a tree
What does it take to pull up stakes?
The question is fair and only if you dare
For the tree is firmly anchored in the ground
And the shovel to dig it out is nowhere to be found
While in contrast, the fence post is easy to be set free
It can be pulled out of the ground so much easier than the tree
What do you see when you spot a fence post in the ground
Is it leaning in or is it leaning out and will it stay
Contrast to the tree it looks like it has begun to decay
If the fence post made out of wood
It will come out easy for it doesn’t have any roots
Most fence posts I know are made out of wood
But without roots, that’s all it is, a piece of wood
So the fence post stands alone and the tree has deep and strong roots
Roots that are hidden and asleep but strong enough to hold it up for keeps
While the fence post will pull up stakes and when the tree will stay
There isn’t any question which of the two just wants to play
While the fence post wavers and sways with the wind
Showing its weakness and not knowing whether it will break or bend
So if you choose between the two I would pick the tree
For the fence post will be so much easier to pull up stakes and be free
