Throughout my childhood, I lived in Florida. With parents flying and not being there all the time, and my brothers constantly tearing me down, I looked to nature to help me through the bad times. I was always fascinated by Palm trees. They had a peaceful and soothing aura to them, but yet they could stand strong and proud throughout the most terrible of storms. This is a poem about how the palm trees of Florida helped me stand strong through my own personal storms.
