This is a story of everyone: The Boy & the Apple Tree

A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come
and play around it everyday. He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples,
took a nap under the shadow…he loved the tree and the tree loved to play
with him. Time went by…the little boy had grown up and he no longer
played around the tree every day.

One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad. “Come and play with me” the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I do not play
around trees any more” the boy replied.

“I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, but I do not have
money…but you can pick all my apples and sell them. So, you will have
money.” The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples on the tree
and left happily. The boy never came back after he picked the apples.
The tree was sad.

One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was
excited “Come and play with me” the tree said. “I do not have time to
play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you
help me?” “ Sorry, but I do not have any house. But you can chop off my
branches to build your house.” So the man cut all the branches of the
tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the man
never came back since then. The tree was again lonely and sad.

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” the tree said. “I am getting old. I want to go
sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” said the man. “Use my
trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” So the
man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and never showed
up for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after many years. “Sorry, my boy. But I do not
have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you …” the tree said.
“No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite” the man replied. “No more
trunk for you to climb on” “I am too old for that now” the man said. “I
really cannot give you anything… the only thing left is my dying
roots” the tree said with tears. “I do not need much now, just a place
to rest. I am tired after all these years” the man replied. “Good! Old
tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest, Come, come sit down
with me and rest.” The man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled
with tears…

This is a story of everyone. The tree is like our parents. When we were
young, we loved to play with our Mum and Dad… When we grow up, we
leave them…only come to them when we need something or when we are in trouble. No matter what, parents will always be there and give everything they could just to make you happy.

You may think the boy is cruel to the tree, but that is how all of us
treat our parents.
