What if trees could walk? Or maybe even talk? Where would they go? And what would they say?
Would we be peculiar people lurking on their lawns? Or maybe they would tell us we are destructive deforesters dying for deliverance?
Would they march our malls like Military? Maybe they would tinker with our toddler’s toys in town.
Would they tell us that we were greedy? And that we forget the needy?
Would they garnish our guard dogs, like we bedazzle their branches?
Trees are the gems we take for granted, Is there enough care for the one I planted? One day we will be stranded, Hopefully, our efforts will be expanded.
We must save our ecosystems and the air,
Or else we will be the ones left in despair.
