A Tree in Anguish…

This post was picked as a WOW post by BlogAdda in the Write-Over-the-Weekend initiative ! :-)


As I stand here now,
Sad, tired and alone.
Mother Nature has disappeared,
As time has flown...

They all were destroyed by you,
Brutally killed and dragged away.
Over the years I had ignored you,
And now I have no say...

Where are those days,
And where are those nights.
Together we were a family,
And now this is my plight...

They protected and sheltered all,
They bore the same - for animals and man.
But you broke the promise,
And sought to destroy our clan.

I fear the unexpected now,
God knows when I will be gone.
Should it be now or never,
But I shall never forget this dawn...

My heart feels heavy,
And my trunk feels weak.
But I need to live and be strong,
Or else the future of Mother Nature is bleak...

Oh Man ! You have done enough,
You have taken them all.
It's time for you to realize,
Else you will encounter a bad fall.

You have killed them today,
And repent tomorrow you will.
But before it is too late,
Plant more to see this forest fill.

Learn from your lessons,
Is all I can now strive to say.
Let this misery and war end here,
To mark the beginning of a new day...
