The Weeping Tree



The forest lie barren on both sides
every direction speaks of rotten belief
Insane fools still doesn't understand
what pain would exist without a single green strand

      You have taken my family & dear one's with a single swing of an axe
crushing brutally, the emotions we forlay
I wish the insanity is realized soon
maybe after I am knocked down with bestial blades

I am not taught to complain or curse
its my duty to give you all I posses
just like an old maid without a palisade 
I own the treasures of the world in shade
The sweetness of nectar in my fruits 
and the mystic scent of an occult place

I do not desire such selfishness from my masters
just some respect and protection from the disasters
I wish there's a next generation of trees to your service
offering our heart and soul on silver platter
without the fear of being besieged to a blunt end
Just some trust and that's all we require 




Yayy! This post is a WOW post :)

  8. Not good that we realize things too little too late at times. Maybe we should start planting trees, so a time shouldn't come that we say there is a last tree.

  15. Oh!! I remember this poem!!! Electrifying thoughts I must say.... :) .... I am tired of hoping that people will understand this fact one day. But I can sleep peacefully every night that I don't (at least try to) do anything to hurt trees...
