I think it's referring to

Story of a Tree

Here's How

Break, leave, begin.

Leaves/seeds break from the trees and here it's journey begins

Rove, tear, grow.

it travels aimlessly with the wind, gets deccayed and rises up again as a seedling/ plant/tree

Stop, build, sleep.

stops growing after a time, and also sleeps in the night-> by closing it's leaves like Touch me not plant

Break, leave, unfold.

when the dawn breaks, leaves unfold

Glide, lay, end.

after some/many years all the leaves begin to fall from the tree and the tree dies. And this is how it's journey ends

I might not have given exactly correct explanation in the explanation, and would like your opinions in the comment

  • $\begingroup$ Nice answer, with nice explanations! Not the one I am looking for though; the explanation to "Stop, build, sleep" doesn't fit as well as it could. $\endgroup$ – quidam Jun 25 '16 at 11:53
