Let me live...


I believed that I have been made for you,
and I always did.
Whatever I had, my breath, my body, my life
I offered you all.
I bore all the dust you flung on me,
Silently I bore it all.
Never did I demand anything,
Always survived on my own...
Always welcomed you in my shade.
You hurt me often,
I healed myself  each time.
just to serve you again.
but still you brought me down, why?
I felt, if not me, you would give my child a place to survive,
But you say, you don't have space.
I care for you.I know you need me,

And I am afraid, you might wipe out my existence, 
please don't do that to me..

You might not care to heed me.
You are the most superior being on earth,
and I am just a tree.
