the tree that grew through a boulder emerald bay lake tahoe california

Did you hear about the tree that grew through a boulder?
It had a fierce and tremendous aspiration . . .
to break ground through the dirtiest of circumstances’
In belief of a brighter day’
the tree never once doubted its own strength
Daring 2 dream a little dream’ …
it pushed through despite fate
Eventually the tree broke ground
because it did not give up … it was faith
The strength of the tree’s determination
even split a boulder in two
where it stands tall to this very day
thriving toward blue Tahoe skies
at Emerald Bay

The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
