Pity the Tree

Pity the Tree

A Poem by Cool Girl
"

A poem about a tree

"
Pity the tree
That stands all alone
Unaware of its beauty
Unaware of its own

Pity the tree
With no eyes to see,
With no ears to listen,
That shall never meet me.

Pity the tree
That has no train of thought
No lessons were learned
No lessons were taught

Pity the tree
That knows nothing of past
Or future, or present,
No memories last.

Oh but the tree
Has no reason to worry.
It doesn't love, it doesn't feel,
Oh how I wish I were a tree.

I'd have no more math to do,
I'd have no chores to complete
At me, nobody would yell
At me, nobody would speak

Oh, woe is me
Why wasn't I born a tree?
A tree... a tree...
But no, I couldn't be

The tree will never sing
The tree will never laugh
The tree will never play
The tree will not make friends

So pity the tree,
The wonderful tree.

The tree, so bright, lightens the town
The people stand in awe, they all are astound

But the tree doesn't know,
Nor shall it ever
The tree shall be clueless
Forever and ever

Yes, pity the tree
That shall live until old
With nothing to have
With nothing to hold

Yes, please pity the tree
That stands all alone
Unaware of its beauty
Unaware of its own

This is a wonderful poem, the concept of being alive with no feelings to share or hold is as a tree is cleverly shown, it shows the value of feelings which makes life tasteful. We can't understand the meaning of happiness if we didn't taste the bitterness of sorrow. We need all the feelings to become whole and to live a better life.
This was a lovely ride, thank you for sharing.

very well written. A talent is here and a story being spoken. Keep shining bright.
*I think you meant "I'd have "no" more math to do."
I was reading it and thought you might of forgot to add the "no".

Its a well penned poem..the beauty of not being able to feel vs the agony of not being able to feel all together. Well done job for this one.
