Poems about nature - 'Human' Nature

'Human' Nature - Poem by Arnaldo Ramirez

When I sleep,
I think of when I will grow up.

Will I be something in life?
Or will I be a “nothing” on the street?

I think of myself as a tree,
Small now, but as it grows up,
Will it be big and green?
Or old, with no leaves?

But as I wake up,
Time has passed, and now I am old,
Like the old, dry tree with no leaves.
