Last week, I listened to an audio book from my local library titled, The Confidence Code for Girls: Taking Risks, Messing Up, & Becoming Your Amazingly Imperfect, Totally Powerful Self by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, best-selling authors of The Confidence Code.

Twin Tree
by Fiona Rhea
Two seeds landed here because that is how God meant it to be,
Nourished from the heavens above, together they grew like twins, almost inseparably.
Alas, one grew tall, the other branched off from the straight and narrow call.
Yet in later years, changed it's spin to return next to its twin.
