As I stand

About a tree which is stuck in a battlefield.


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.
