IF I WERE A TREE

Were I a tree, I would from the worldly
pleasures and treasures remain free,
I would be unmoved by the calamities
(rain, earthquake, flood) of life,
Providing fruit to the beggars or poor I 
would their tears wipe.

I would prevent soil erosion and
pollution,
I would to mankind give all problems
solution.

Were I today not there on this earth,
Man would starve for food since their
birth.
I attract rain clouds to bring rain
I give everyone happiness but who
does realise my pain?

For his own interests he cuts me down,
I am cut into pieces and in agony I 
groan!

    Yes Gargi stand up for the trees and protect them. You have given them a voice. May they keep you warm in your two by four built home. Michael Torres
