Now is the Time

Don't wait on tomorrow to be what you are 
Don't wait on the journey to take you that far
Can you be just in your own boots
Like a tree in the ground with deeper roots 
To hold it secure, firm in the soil 
Not subject to wind or any kind of toil
As the leaves they move and the breeze it sways
And you're gonna be grown one of these days 
To stand firm and stand true in beauty you own
The bird on its perch before it has flown
Away to the openness of sky
You are serene and I don't know why 
In the stillness you stand, in foliage green
The forest is the best thing I've ever seen
