Me, and the trees

I always longed to make my roots somewhere.

To feel I was belonging to someplace. Having the conviction I could find peace when in a precise spatial delineation within the universe, coordinated by geographical points;

And nowhere else.

Then I heard life saying:
The trees, they are outside!

Grab your arm. Clench it: it hurts. Skin changing color. Flesh sweating, swelling, smelling.
Arms pointing, holding who you love, stretching to turn off the air on the plane that is only on your face, stretching when you wake up in the morning. Those branches you possess unravelling towards the above, the undiscovered, the infinite possibilities, collecting the oxygen that makes your blood run, faster;

And I looked around, and I was possibly by myself, surely within myself: but nowhere where I had to be.
