Any and all thoughts welcome! Please let me know what you think!
I really like the first line because I see it as a metaphor ( I am not sure if that was your intention but...) The trees seem to me the people. And this assasin is one of the mighty oaks, even if he refuses to accept it he is swaying in the wind, just like everyone else. And the more observant people will see this, no matter how much he tries to hide it.
I am left with a great sympathy and sadness for the assasin. Why does he have to suffer so much because of others? And himself, really.
The one question I kept thinking as I read this was: How did you come up with all this just from watching the wind? You must have a great imagination!
Well done! And I would honestly like to read more of this. Your descriptions are great and you have greated a deep character.
