A tree in the forest was competing hard for sunlight. The only way to absorb as much light as possible was to grow vertically upward, as fast as it could. That was not going to be easy. Other trees were growing close by and their branches were reaching out and blocking the space above. With the quest to survive and grow tall, the tree pushed its way amidst the dense foliage surrounding it. The upward growing continued. That was how life should be.
