(Raise Your Voice) The Human and the Tree

Poetry By: Ousma

A conversation between a human and a tree. This was a result of a creative writing club meeting where we played with a style of poetry that goes between two opposing points of view but meets up at the end with a single common idea. I encourage you to try it; it's fun.

I walk upon this ground

I rise up from it

I am small in these woodlands

I am the tallest being around

I cannot move you, mighty beast

Yes, for I am rooted to this ground

But I can make you fall,

For I start the chainsaw

And I feel its merciless bite

The chainsaw was made for me

I kill you for material things

I provide you with life-giving air

I create to destroy

I do not like to share

I live a peaceful life

My purpose is to provide for myself and others

I forget

I remember

That I am not the only one on this earth.
