A Tiny Sapling

A Tiny Sapling

I’m a tiny sapling,
Of the green verdant world.
Help me! I’m new, foreign,
Scared of the empty earth,
Where dark clouds hide the sun.

I’m a tiny sapling,
And loneliness bites me,
For my kindred all died,
Before I was born here,
There’s no one by my side.

I’m a tiny sapling,
And this grey grey world is,
For me, quite horrific.
Yet I will fight to live,
As long my life can stick.

I’m a tiny sapling,
I grow against all odds,
Because my will is strong.
But I won’t stay always…
Unless Man rights his wrong.
