1. As I stand

I stand here as the fire blazes past me,

Bullets and grenades, all thrown in between.

 

As I stand here and see what they do next,

A soldier comes and sits under me to rest.

I caress him softly, my leaves falling on him,

He’s breathing heavily, got no water to drink.

 

More gunshots echo, in the corner a fire dances completely oblivious.

 

I notice that one side is losing very gravely,

They all are panting, fighting very meekly.

But suddenly, a bomb explodes right where I am.

My feet wobble, I lose my stand.

 

And then, the flames engulf me inside them,

As I take my fall, I see those enemies win.
