“I put every person that comes in my life in the category of tree. Some people are like leaves on a tree. The wind blow, they over here. They unstable. The wind blow the other way, they over here. Season change, they wither and die. They gone.
That’s all right, that’s some people. Most people in world are like that. They just there to take from the tree. They ain’t there to do nothing but take, and give shade every now and then. That’s all they do. But don’t get mad at people like that, that’s just the way they are. They ain’t never gone be nothing else. They wasn’t put on earth to be nothing but what are: a leaf.
Some people are like a branch on that tree. You gotta’ be careful with them branches, too. Cause’ they’ll fool you. They get you out there and make you think they’re good friend, and they real strong . . But the minute you step out there on ’em, they’ll break and leave you high dry.
But if you find two or three people in your life that’s like them roots at bottom of that tree . . .you are blessed! Cuz them the kind of people that ain’t going nowhere. They ain’t worried about being seen, don’t nobody have to know that they know you. They ain’t got to know what they doing for you. But if them roots wasn’t there, that tree couldn’t live.”
So, are you a leaf, a branch or a tree?
