Satisfaction

I learned
Bravery,
From the
Bare trees
Standing tall
In the freezing winter;

Magnitude,
From
Everlasting nature
Despite human's rupture;

Maturity,
In the bearing of
Man's destitution;

Modesty,
In the waiting of
Believers
For justice;

And
Beauty,
In love for
Coexistence.

Now,
I can carry my load,
Lighter than a feather,
To another destination.
