Climbing Out of Your Family Tree

The apple falls
how far does it fall
where does it land?
what does it do when it lands?

Can you climb back up?
or do you want to climb a new tree?
did you fall with planned intent
as far away as possible?

Are you planning on taking root
where you fell
to grow a new tree?

although you better be careful not to take root
near a snake pit or apple orchard
