I am Life - I am You

If I were a tree in a garden In silence I would stand strong UNIQUE and BEAUTlFUL My soul would feel blessed To give life to other living beings From the breeze of my fresh breath My soul would feel blissful when Many find solace in my shade On scorching sweltering summer days My soul would soothe each day In ecstatic overflow of serenity Elated to listen from dawn to dusk Those exquisite sweet songs of birds That nestle in my sprawling branches My soul would sense colours of hope When first ray of dawn caresses my skin Brightening all living cells and beings within me I am LIFE, I am YOU I am THE CONNECTION in-between Destroying ME is destroying YOUR OWN SELF!

Yes so sad it continues to happen Tom, they are not aware such selfish deeds result in destroying their own selves. Thank you Tom. God bless. :)
