not a synonym

i surrender

like a tree-branch bent earthward by gravity

i surrender

like a canopy

thrust sun-ward by its thirst

i surrender like an old oak stretched proud by its irresistible desires

- to gravity

- to sun

to the wills and aches that balance me

and allow me to grow

and i know

that to surrender

is not a synonym

of to fail

or to fall
