I want to be a Tree

I do not want to speak a word

People can come and talk to me their stories

I do not want to give any suggestion

They can just share their ideas

I will give them shade

They can come and lie down

I will bear my fruits

Those who want them will take away

Some dogs will come and pee on me

I will love them anyway

Someday, someone will come and cut me down

to build whatever they want to

(hopefully not a wall but a bridge, but what can I say?)

And I can still offer my stump.
