Pick up and leave

Just go

Don’t stay because this life

Simply makes you sway

Like a tree that isn’t meant

To be rooted in one place

But is stuck by its roots

Into the soil


Don’t stay

Here or anywhere

Keep on going

Through the seasons of life

Into another country

Through another river

Up a different mountain

Around a new kitchen

Down another road


Don’t stay

Find a place

In someone’s heart

That you’ve never met before


Don’t stay

Pick up and leave

Just go

Somewhere else

Let yourself wander

Be unlike any tree

You’ve ever seen before
