My hair ruffles with the current of air, which swifts and sways my body, back and forth, gradually at my own unhurried pace. My ancestors and roots go as far back as time itself; I was here at the beginning of time, although not as I am now, but my seed was here. The seasons change and nurture me; as I understand their purpose, unlike so many others like you. I worship the goddess that helps me to grow; my mother, our mother, we are distant family. I understand you and your doings, although I am unable to express or contemplate this quality of yours in which you fail to recognize anything beyond your nose. I am aware that you do not fully appreciate me; my beauty, my talents, my aura and my purpose. I can stand a millimeter away from you and although you’re somewhat aware of my existence, you fail to notice me and my splendor. I give life, and can make one too, I help life flourish, I am a life. Unlike you, myself and my race do not kill; we understand it is not our duty to play the tyrant.

My race is dying, we are being slaughtered, it seems we are too useful or a nuisance, you are too narrow minded and ignorant to care. My cousins are being kept as slaves, being used for your necessities. You are playing god and replicating lives for us; I alone have all that is needed to reproduce, are you better at it than me? You choose where we live, whom we live among, when we die, how we die and then you even, take the liberty of using us to make you look good. We are being used by your judgment at our expense; not for long it will be at your expense soon.

I know the meaning of life on earth; your individual purposes are not the reason for this existence, nor the abundances of materials that you are forever forsaking and basing your lives on. We are here on a journey to enrich ourselves with experiences and knowledge to reach complete fulfillment for our souls. We are currently living and learning on the material plane and planet we call earth, you do not understand these lessons. You do not hear our voices, you long ago stopped listening. Therefore how can we inform you of the pain and suffering you are committing among our race? We provide you with enough for you to live and breathe; why the greed? We ask nothing of you yet you take maliciously and carelessly from us.

I am alone where I stand although not fully as I am surrounded. I have a name, you may have learnt it although I daresay you truly understood its meaning; in its translated old English form I am interpreted as a treow, the Modern English term for me is Tree.

 

This is a statement proclaiming a declaration of judgment from all earths’ primary influences; we stand for this abuse no longer, your time is looming near to an end.

 

The air you breathe will no longer be oxygen; we have the ability to starve your lungs of this. Your precious gardens, which should be considered as a family rather than a fashion, will uproot themselves in order to fight against you. You will be cut off from our world, used as slaves and imprisoned in institutions which we feel fit for you. Those of you that we believe worthy to feed shall be individually judged and sentenced, taking into consideration your ignorance as well as your previous awareness towards our kin. You will surrender the role of earths rulers unto us, it was ours first, we gave it to you in order to keep peace on our planet, all those millenniums ago.
 

You have forgotten the lessons our mother taught us, therefore you no longer deserve to teach. You have confused your kin with books of religion that preach a word too misunderstood to follow. The word that you have based this current knowledge on has been lost yet interpreted by your ancestors; this is destroying humanity which is destroying us and the other races.

The day of judgement has come! Those who are worthy will begin the new human race and learn once again the meaning of life and how to maintain it. We shall choose you. Do not fret we have watched each one of you carefully throughout your lives; we know how to judge you. Those children whom have escaped from the inept moral guidance you have inflicted upon them shall be spared. Therefore do not fear; if you have provided your child with the primary necessities of being a true being, they will live. The life they shall lead will prove a euphoric experience.

Take in my words and try to understand their purpose; I am merely trying to enlighten you to the wisdom and knowledge that my race has gained throughout our time. And to encourage the fact that the decision that has been made is in favour of the primary sources. This is not the first time we have tried to stall this judgment that our mother has put upon you, and it is not the first time she has declared such a sentence. Although throughout the past two centuries you have not heeded our warnings, ignored them in-fact, therefore we have no other alternative but to shed our earth of this virus, we call humans.

Humans speak: Do not judge us on our ignorance alone, you are right we are incapable of learning from our mistakes, but that is a bad trait of ours that is etched into our bones. We have failed to learn the lessons only because we have lost the ability to understand. Our race has a lot to give, you perceive us to be greedy, it is only because we were spoilt. Your right you are our sources to live and breathe but why feel used that is your purpose. We did not realize we were causing pain, our ears do not hear your screams. You are right we probably do not listen, but how can we if we forgot your language. You feel that we are taking advantage of your matter, wouldn’t you rather be used than forgotten. Everything that is man-made comes from you, yes we manufactured it but hey we were bored.

Ants speak: They’re both not seeing what is needed here, we can see it but everyone pays no mind to us. They are both necessary in-fact vital for the development and result of our planet.

Elves speak: We understand you our earthly friends, you are right these humans are ignorant beings and our world will be able to fulfill its purpose if our mother does declare this judgment. They are the majority influence on this material plane and would serve a better position if they were the minority. We agree with your protest and heed your words but you know as well as us that our mother hasn’t declared such a sentence, although I doubt the time is far off. You cannot take it upon yourselves to guide Earths fate. Do they hear you now you shout? If so maybe they haven’t forgotten how to listen, maybe you need to learn their language and try to teach them what they forgot.

Mother speaks:  My children, conflict is not the way forward to achieve peace, conflict is the substance of war. I will decide when to declare judgment. However I believe amongst you all you have the ability to end this era of which humans are causing this damage, not by eradicating them but by gathering all learned knowledge; understanding each other and the purpose of earth.  A new motion will then spread; an era of moral virtue, an end to death by destruction. Learn the meanings of faith, hope and charity.
