(Raise Your Voice) The Human and the Tree (a poem)

Raise Your Voice
The Human and the Tree
Written February 1st, 2012
I walk upon this ground
I rise up from it
I am small in these woodlands
I am the tallest being around
I cannot move you, mighty beast
Yes, for I am rooted to this ground
But I can make you fall,
For I start the chainsaw
And I feel its merciless bite
The chainsaw was made for me
I kill you for material things
I provide you with life-giving air
I create to destroy
I do not like to share
I live a peaceful life
My purpose is to provide for myself and others
I forget
I remember

That I am not the only one on this earth.
