I struck a root
And it turned into a tree;
Made itself a forest
Looking for the birds and bees.
I struck a root
Inviting sheep to come and play,
I ran into a fox
But I let it get away.
 
I created fire
That the wood could build itself anew;
I planted a seed
To see what time could do.
Everything looks different now
Though the concept’s all the same,
You could cut it down a million times
But the shadows still remain.
 
I struck a root
That sent a quiver through the tree;
It feels a little lighter now
But it still looks a lot like me .
