The worst betrayal, walking out on oneself. This tree doesn’t though, walk out on it itself, it does what it is supposed to do and follows it heart year after year after year: leaves burst forth spawn seeds spread them age brown wither, fly off and hibernate to return again in the spring.

Life dies and renews and dies again impervious to any inward betrayals.
