There was this girl in
elementary,
who was tall and skinny
like a brown palm tree.
The others laughed
at her bushy leaves,
so she cried
and cried
like a drama queen.

Then she grew and grew
up to the blue,
grew and grew
as time flew,
grew and grew
and grew and grew
until she found
a pretty nice view.

Let the storm hit.
Let the waves crash.
Those plain trees
are being trashed.
She bends and sways
throughout the clash,
won’t uproot,
cause she’s brash.

Then she grew and grew
up to the blue,
grew and grew
as time flew,
grew and grew
and grew and grew,
until she found
a pretty nice view.

You sure have changed,
got wind-blown flair,
not a single ounce
of wear and tear.
You just don’t care.
And you’re not scared.
You’re unbreakable, baby.
That’s beauty right there.
100 writing themes challenge #4: Unbreakable. And I wrote a song?
 Jack-WTF?
It just felt natural I guess. I could imagine a cello bass to this but I... digress! lol

*ahem* Sorry if the chorus-part-thingy is repetitive, just stuck to a beat. Palm trees can withstand hurricanes because they bend to wind current. Also, their roots are deeper and fanned out. Their trunk? Imagine large steel cables stuck together from root to leaf, encased in thread-like bark.

If you can learn a lesson from a palm tree: work hard for a strong foundation, and make sure you're flexible enough to endure life's problems... yep. Cutie Thumbs Up

Thanks for reading,

Wow a song! I've tried writing one of those before, but they're hard XO You did a good job with this. It'd be cool if someone sang/played an instrument to it :)
