Nothing is Impossible & We Live and Learn

We are the trees
Standing here
Tall and Magnificent
Mighty and Strong
Glowing with life

We sustain you, shelter you, feed you
And look how you repay us
You murder our families
And take away what is rightfully ours

How dare you compare us
With a pathetic little chair
Who are you to say
That the corpse is superior to the essence
Who are you to say
That a chair is superior to a life

I hope that after reading this poem people will stop taking trees for granted and see their true beauty
