Let Life Live - Poem by Sergio Correia

I am a bird but I can't fly.
My hunters clip my feathers.
And with them my freedom flew. No more blue sky
Open space, vastness
I am caught in a cage.
I am a fish but I can't swim. Men are polluting the waters,
My eyes are burning,
My skin is peeling off,
My vision is blurry. No more blue water,
Open space, vastness
I am caught in a cage. I am a tree but I can't grow
And bear fruits.
Lumberjack are burning my leaves
And cutting my soul in two. No more blue stars,
open space, vastness
I became a wooden cage.
I've trapped my hunters. They can't eat and breath anymore
Because they have destroyed
The source of life, nature.
