when i was a little girl my heart was made of forests towering trees that housed little woodland creatures

i am a forest

when i was a little girl my heart was made of forests

towering trees that housed little woodland creatures

and through the trees wafted an aura of calm

a peace that only lives within the children

who run through the fields full of wildflowers

without a care for the hour

or what tomorrow may bring

and as i grew id go through winter months

when the leaves no longer lived in my heart

and my mind was weighed down full of ice

but the little rabbits still hoped

and the foxes raced

the cold snow held a silence that assured spring would come again

and one day i ventured into a world who had not seen a forest within a girl

they saw the trees and how sturdy they made me

and they told me how nice they were

so i let them have a few

just so they could be strong too

and then they saw the flowers that colored all of my meadows

and they told me that they were the prettiest they had seen

and i wanted them to feel pretty too

so i let them have a few

but then they saw my critters and they took them too

because if i had given the trees

and the meadows

than surely i wouldn't mind some creatures?

before i knew it my forest

which had once stretched the entire world

was but a single tree

and my days as a child running through the field

were suddenly over

and my time spent sitting under the trees seemed to lack the earlier peace

because the forest is gone

the wood, used to build homes

for the creatures who used to seek shelter with the girl

the flowers, lessons that those critters carried

to retell when it benefited them

an entire forest

taken by a world

who never noticed how the forest belonged in the girl
