The Green Tears

. I have a right, a right to thrive You have a right, a right to live All life matter, we all matter I need a space, you have a place We were created for each other I thrive on your expelled breath My life depends on you I was committed to your care You need my airy presence Which I loyally present Without uttering a word Never asking for more I was your silent companion Sheltering you from rays ,until Technology like a charming mistress Blowed your mind away Your inventions became my depletion Your activities my distress I plead to maintain my place Knowing that I served, giving all I have Sweet scent, sweet songs , succulent fruit Fresh air, beautiful flowers I offered But you needed more than I can offer My Whispers drowned by the noise Echoed by the wind, unheeded by you As the cruel axe bears down on me Like an unfeeling invader Mindless and merciless Scattering all my feathered guest As I bowed to the pains, Thrust deeper by each stroke Only the birds understood Homeless and confused, Helpless and voiceless, tweeting endlessly Green life matters, A tree life matters.
