An oak tree, alone on a hill, may grow big and strong,
but when gale-force winds descend, it may topple down.
An oak forest, where trunks stand side by side, limb
to limb, feet entwined with each other’s, will long endure.
Oak trees do not choose where they grow. Fate chooses
where the acorn finds its way into the soil.
Where do you find yourself planted?
Did you choose it?
No? Will you pull yourself up?
Will you walk to the hill?
Walk to the forest?
Or fly where you will?
