This poem really touches on the sad truth of nature, and how many humans continue to treat it with such disrespect, and uncaring. I think the personification in this poem is truly outstanding, really making that tree so real, it could probably be read and taken as a humans view of a bad upbringing too. The title was so strong and really drew that poem to pinpoint such a disaster that happens more and more these days, and also to highlight the ending of the poem with the word "massacre" what a really powerful image to end on. A really fantastic poem, really creative blend of sadness, truth and nature.
I was crying as I read this piece, simply for the beauty and perfection of the write. It not only leaves an impact of the world and how delicate it really is but it leaves the reader contemplating many things as well. The way that this message was relayed to the audience is fantastic, there is an undeniable sense of emotion that shows up in this and a marvelous use of imagery helps make the point even more impacting.
