The hardest part was exiting the cement wall

It was created to keep me on the other side

To keep me from seeing what was behind the wall

But there is always a way

And after many tries I left

What I saw on the other side was

The hustle and bustle of the city

Children eating popsicles and they walked, talked and laughed

I saw artists at work

I heard the cacophony of the sound of the cars and 

People sounding their horns

The concrete wall tried to contain me and stop my growth

But I was determined to grow

And slowly, painstakingly, I used my creativity

To grow and grow

My branches are lush with leaves now

Let me be an inspiration to those who

Want to move through the barriers of life

I may be bent, but I am happy
