Grandmother Wise Audition Sides

That’s a big ugly tree.

That’s a fig tree, we had a lot of fig trees down south
where I grow up at. I would pick the figs off that tree, and
they would be so sweet and good! But only If you picked them
at the right time. But If you pick them to soon they would
be sour and hard. I remember all the other trees would be
fully grown, the apple tree, peach tree, and lemon tree. But
the fig tree was growing so slow. I thought something was
wrong with it. Until my mother told me, you see all those other
trees big and tall with fruit on it ready to be picked. And
that little old fig tree taking a long time to grow. But
that little fig tree is the strongest of them all. I looked
at her like she was crazy. She said watch and see. A few
months went by and the fig tree got stronger and taller. It
made it through the rain, snow, and even the hail. And all
the other trees either died or were knocked down. I didn’t
understand it, I went to my mother and said momma that fig
tree lived through all that rain and snow and the other trees
died. How is that? She said a fig tree takes its time to
grow, so its roots can grow strong! Since its roots are
strong it can stand any storm.

See baby we should live our lives
like the fig tree. Take your time to
grow and learn, you will get
through the storm.
