The Two Trees

by Leah20   Sep 12, 2004

Two trees stand
Above them all
They will always be standing
For surely they cannot fall
Creatures from far and wide
Come to gather in this place
Just to stand inside
And marvel at its grace
"Look over there"
A creature says one day
"There is a bird
Who is surely headed our way"
Then into the tree
The Bird does fly
The tree collapses
On everyone inside
Surely it was a mistake
It could not be true
Look at all the damage
Such a small thing could do
But then another bird appears
This must be an attack
It crushes the other tree
Without even looking back
The small creatures gather
And they work out a plan
This can no longer happen
This world is out of hand
The creatures unite
And all swear to
Protect and fight
No longer will
The terrorists rein
Because they cause too much
Destruction and pain
Banning together they fight
And they win
They have saved themselves
The world is now safe
But they must never forget
The lives gone to waste

    Good, but it didn't seem to have the same flow and feeling as the others of yours I've read.

    A very good poem indeed.

    One question: does the following line refer to the terrorists or the people?

    "Banning together they fight
    And they win"
