That’s How It Goes

Written by Jacob Ibrag

I am a tree stretching its roots toward the core

of this planet. I am sentience in awe of a tornado that

wants nothing more than to rip me out. That’s how it goes,

fascination and fear juxtaposed. If I survive this, will I be made

stronger? Will I want to loosen my grip to feel less grounded?

I am a tree with more than a few broken branches. I am

disheveled and more alive than I ever have been.
