Ask the Trees

Ask the tree how it feels-
How it feels to be once one of many,
And then to be all alone.
Do you think they feel happy standing solitary among the carcasses of their brothers?

Ask the trees what they see-
What they see when men in trucks invade their home.
Do they see people,
Or do they see monsters?

Ask the trees why they don’t fight back-
Why they don’t fight back when no one else will.
Don’t they care what happens to them,
Or do they believe in us to make this right?

"This will certify that the above work is completely original," Maria C. Viteri
