Life or Death, Your Choice

I am a bird.


I am a tree.
I am uncatchable.


I could get caught and


cut down at any given


moment.
I feel unstoppable as
my wings flap through the
bright blue, cloud-filled
sky.


I am rooted into the


earth as the wind hits


my leaves and branches


bringing a nice calm


breeze.
You shoot me just
because you think
you can, and i'm not
so uncatchable now;
but did you know that
I have a family?


You cut me down and use


me for firewood, but did


you know that you're just


giving the earth less


oxygen?
my babies have
no one now.


Now you have no shade and


your planet is dying.
I am the last bird
on this planet.

I am the last tree on this

planet.
kill me, and there
won't be any birds
left.


Kill me, and you'll die


along with your planet.
