A Forest

A forest is a factory
recycling polluted air
producing tons of oxygen
whether or not we care

A forest is a network
a web beneath our feet
sharing information
keeping it discrete

A forest is a harvest
fuel, paper, wood
clean and sustainable
to make us feel good

A forest is a home
to countless little creatures
that fill it full of life
another of its features

A forest is a haven
sanctuary for the soul
a place to cleanse the mind
when the city takes its toll

A forest is our future
a chance for our rebirth
one final opportunity
to save our precious Earth
