If blades of grass could grieve and feel like humans

If trees could

the earth beneath our feet would be trying to pull us down 

the trees around us would be reaching for us to pull us apart 

cut us down 

as we do them

to die

and give back to the earth and all the things related to what we kill

life 

to make up for the billions of their lives we take each day. 

 

If humans could have the serenity of the grass beneath our feet

The trees above and around us

we would be a better for it

if we could feel just a little remorse for a single blade of grass we cut

a branch we break

we would be better for it.
