Satyr

they say plants feel nothing

it is their justification

when they rip out precious roots

shred grass

set fire


mother earth is kind and giving

but she is also vengeful

we spirits know truth

we plant

we save


warnings are deaf to the mortals

they choose a painful path

we can only help little at a time

they hurt

they kill


their destruction is multiplied

our people dwindle

we fear the fate of gaea

we are exhausted

we tire out


i can only hope that in my next life

when i am born again as flora

i am cared for

nurtured for

live freely
