If a tree was to fall,
and nobody was around,
would it make a sound?

That's how I feel.
Like I'm falling,
nobody's around,
and I'm barely making a sound.

Why might the tree fall you ask?
Well, let's look at the cause of the situation.

Maybe a man is at its roots hacking away.
Or maybe its too small to get any sunlight.
Or maybe its because of erosion.

I mean, it doesn't really matter.
Who cares about a tree?
Especially when no-one could hear its sound.
It last breath before giving up.

Nothing like this happens overnight.
Damage like THIS takes time.
Now that it's gone, maybe everyone will hear.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem during a hardship in my relationship. I felt like there was nowhere elce to turn in my darkest days. I needed to express myself positively. This is what I came up with.
