'Neath a tree,
I was born,
And from the tree,
I breathed.

My milk was its
Water,
My clothes, its leaves,
My food, its food.

Only thing was mine,
Was a heartbeat
That drummed
From the inside.

Men cut my tree,
And I wandered
Carrying nothing,
but my heart's drum.

This is a really good poem. I understood it in a way.
