TREES DIE STANDING UP
Have you ever contemplated about a tree?
How strong, beautiful and sturdy?
That they stand during all of the seasons
they are just there to just be...
they are not like humans with reasons...
Their branches are like our limbs
they are more like us then bugs who have wings.
We mostly die laying down.
Trees die standing up, up, up...
unless they fall down...
by lighting or a human's hand
they only have good emotions I understand
stand, stand, stand...
More humans should be like trees
who are bringers of light...
they help us on the planet with our life
for they have feelings so treat them right.
So acknowledge them day and night.
