Ever there is one in the family tree to which this applies.
Branch


The strongest branch of the tree

is the one that comes from under the soil.

Though it is considered a root

and never leaves

it grows towards the light as though

driven to drive the entire tree to life

in the agony of its own vacillation

of wanting to be both root and branch.
