the root of it

Gray roots result in decayed leaves.
Abusive actions become like thieves–
stealing away what should not be theirs.
Walking away like the rightful heirs.
Green roots turn to gray
with every hit that they take.
Green roots start to ache,
and green leaves decay.
Until only gray roots and decayed leaves
remain.
