Some Other Pine

And so it goes, with daring consistency
What unparalleled steadfastness
You're some sort of evergreen error
in an e'er-changing forest of human decency
We all change and form with the weather
Yet still you stand;
unfazed, unmoved, as stubborn and predictable as ever
I used to think it was good;
but consistency is only as good as the things you're consistent with
It's a shame;
How I'm always the one watering your roots and keeping the axes at bay
I've tried, I really have
I want to believe that you've changed
and that its just good will and strength that are all enduring
But it's not
You've clung to your flaws and dug down so deeply that it's unhealthy now
It's over, child
I'll find my peace beneath some other pine...
