Tree Jealousy

How long can a man go
Out of sync with his species?

What has value for others
Is worthless to me
And what has meaning for me
Falls on deaf ears

Even the strongest connections are becoming frayed
I don't recognize my heart

Maybe the problem supersedes species
Maybe I need to see beyond the kingdom of animals
 
If I could be a tree
That's grown out of the dirt from a nut

I'd have stability
Roots
And the ability to open myself to the warmth of the sun.
