Secret Keeper

It all started in a forest with sky-heightened trees,
When I was part of one of the breeches,
Lived with leaves and enjoyed the calm breezes,
It was my life with eases and pleases.

Then a man came to forest to tear us away,
Broke us into pieces and left us astray,
We left the forest with our tortured souls,
With a wish to recover and live one more day.

He took us to his cart and placed us there,
Drove to his factory and settled our layers,
Passed us through savage procedures with no care,
Made paper out of us for his income of this year.

We shouted, we cried because of the pain,
We screeched, we shrieked with eyes about to drain,
We tried our luck because we were insane,
But no one heard us, all in vain.

Now I am with you to share your dreams,
Listen to your stories and bear them on me,
I am your partner and you are mine,
So be my soulmate and i'll be your lifeline.

This was a short message about blessings we have and how we use them.

Thank you Moondot for your visit and comment.

A very impressive poem. It makes me feel that I am reading to someone to whom I know from within. A story of brutality; faced by trees. And there is no better companion for paper than the pen. I appreciate your thoughts.

When the tree is personified, and gets to tell his or her story, the message comes through powerfully. Good work and thanks!

Thank you Lorna for appreciating my work and giving your insight.

I love being out in nature and your poem spoke to me of how important it is to save our trees and by doing so save ourselves. I enjoyed this poem - well written with a timeless message.

Actually, I have been dreaming and thinking about woods and animals living there since last one month and this idea popped up in my mind when I was drawing woods on paper.

Your comment reminded me of that.

Thanks @ Flourish Anyway
