“Chinese Bamboo Tree” – A poem on Patience by Kinge from Temet Nosce (re-blogged)

A beautiful poem of learning such valuable lessons from nature to apply to our lives!

Develop your inner strength first, like me
The other trees sprout and grow in a few months
I take years with no sign of growth
But trust me, I am working on my foundation from within
Strengthening my root system for the future

Nurture your dreams, like me
The other trees grow tall before I even sprout
Hidden in fertile ground, I dream of great heights
And when I sprout, in weeks I’m 80 feet high
The foundations and dreams Got me here

Have faith and believe in yourself, like me
Although I take time to sprout, I know I eventually will
Despite my hollow inside, on the outside I know I’m as hard as iron
My uses plentiful, lucky bamboo
My value, invaluable

Be patient, like me
Learn to delay your gratification, the way I’m patient with my growth
Suppress fear and doubt, for the greatness, is just about

  1. Fantastic and had never known such profound information of these woods and trees. Hope we could be just like the trees and have so much to learn from them. Nature teaches us so many things of importance but we as humans fail to understand from her and keep on destroying our Mother Earth. Awesome post, Amira.
