Sometimes a tree is just a tree
Not a symbol, or a simile
It's not like a person
No personification
And it sure isn’t alliteration
It isn’t deep
It’s easy to see
Sometimes a tree is just a tree

I was reading poems in class and we were made to find what the poet meant. Sometimes a tree is just a tree.

Simple, sweet, witty, and to the point. The flow is awesome, and I totally agree with your message. Although I could be interpreting it wrong... ;)

Beautiful! I love the use of figurative language terms, and the way it was just a tree and just everything! Amazing Poem! Its definitely not just a poem!

I like it :) shows the simplicity of things. Short and sweet, only thing I could say is the rhyming isn't consistent, but I'm just meticulous sometimes... Good job :)
