The tree has been here forever It has roots It reaches towards the sky They are taken for granted and ignored They give us life, even when we could not see how
The branches stretch, leaves taking in air and water We barely see them grow But we know they must; we want them to We anticipate their continuance
For as long as the tree has been Someone has always used the tree They chop, attack, burn it Deforest Yet the roots remain
The tree survives not through itself But by making more trees pollen spreads, joins with flowers changes
See the tree.
(the future is already here)
The tree saves us Even while we abuse it Yet it survives, grows, adapts
