A humble legend
Towering above a quiet town
Uniting through charity
Strong, rooted, stoic
Calm and collected
Tried and true.
A wayward child, scared,
Wide-eyed unearthing skeletons,
The legend places a calming hand,
An alternative to the brutal reality,
The chaos so apparent in the foreground.
Not just through the stillness,
The legend, while tiring,
Reaches to the sky to harness the sun,
Sprinkling laughter and kindness
Upon the town, easing anxiety,
deeply rooted in love.
In moments of chaos,
Of hollowed sorrows and fragility,
With an immovable force,
Recalling gratitude and inspiration,
The legend rises above the town,
Motivating the community to remember:
Remember their own roots.
Remember the future.
Remember the past.
The legend lives on inside us all.
(In memory of Barney)
