Just A Tree

Skyscrapers are all that’s left of this world

But I console myself with books and stories from the old.

They tell of how green and tall the trees use to be

Some grew in meters high that the top you could hardly see.

Now, buildings tower over everything

The trees are all gone, reduced to nothing.

Oh! What I would give to see a tree!

The Trees Are No More

The trees that used to tower over everything are no more

They have been replaced by iron and steel.

The trees that used to sing and sway in the breeze

Have been cut down, removed from existence.

They cried, but no one heard them

Or if they did, they ignored them.

The once beautiful trees have gone extinct

And soon, we will too.
