"When someone shows you who they are, believe them" - Maya Angelou

Fingerprints of age,
Imprinted on its skin.
A mirror to its past,
Without praise or sin.
Its eyes are rusted,
By the shadow of time,
Wisdom is hidden,
Boundless and sublime.
Our secrets are lost,
To a scar we can’t see,
Buried in the fingerprints,
Of a humble tree.

Sometimes if you look at things see a whole new meaning.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
