Majestic Trees

Trees are majestic in nature.
They grow strong and tall,
creating large canopy
to provide shade and shelter
for the many beings
which make trees their home.
They grow very old and wise
leaving a trail of stories
on their trunks and roots.
They are Earth's heritage
to the beings that call
Earth their home.

But alas, many majestic trees
are not allowed to grow
in the throne they sit on.
Many majestic trees
have been chopped down
in the name of development.
Many trees have been made
into pieces of furniture or home fittings.
Many trees have been turned
into pulp and paper.

In place, some trees are replanted.
But it takes years to replace
what has been taken out.
Some trees are replanted
but of a different kind,
the kind that is not of the place,
the kind that is from some place else,
the kind that does not provide
the shade and shelter of
what used to be.

It is sad to see such cruelty
made on Mother Nature,
when she has kept us
well fed and protected,
to see majestic trees felled
by a race which is superior
to the animal kingdom.
