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