Standing majestic tall touching the sky,
gently rocking back and forth.
as life stops.
Tears swell up,
the heart claimed pain so intense it stopped for a second.
A mindless machine ripped through the forest,
understanding what it was doing,
the pain inflicted as it sliced through the young forest.
Not knowing they are alive,
shelter to many species of animal life,
the oxygen sucked out,
shade it brings while the land heats,
the broken chain.
Does anyone think of the consequences that progress puts upon us?
