One purpose for roots is to hold on to their ground
so the tree does not fall over lightly.
They spread out to the side where the balance is found,
seldom seen like here so brightly.
For people the balancing act is to find
the roots that made their ways
into character traits, and not to be blind
for whatever inherent stays.
Accepting your roots means to let them hold
a major part of your being,
but your own life needs you to be bold,
be the person that people are seeing.
