History is a complicated thing isnt it?

One thousand years.<br>

A millenium.<br>

The history of man has changed<br>

People lived, and fell.<br>

But one being,<br>

One living organism,<br>

Out-lived history.<br>

Saw more saddness and happyness than any man.<br>

A tree.<br>

Tall and proud,<br>

But respectfull and lonley.<br>

Its leaves wisper the story<br>

Of its lonley life<br>

The people that sat under it,<br>

Fought under it,<br>

Loved under it.<br>

The history of man<br>

Sung from its lonley branches,<br>

The knowledge of nature<br>

carved on its proud bark<br>

Imagine what will happen if it talked<br>

If its bark preached the knowledge,<br>

And the leaves teached history.<br>

Why cant man listen<br>

To this old, lonley tree?<br>

Because even after one thousand years,<br>

Man has yet to speak.
