Just woke up, only to realise that I am in a completely different place, and yet looks strikingly similar to the one I live in.
Or is it the same place ? Confused *scratches head*
I tried recalling, what exactly happened. Just when I was stressing hard (while scratching my head, of course), I felt a little pain towards the lower part of my body. Holy Shit!! Bruises, cuts and everything, right there ?!!!
and then it all came flashing by at once.
There was an Axe lying around, probably the same one which is the reason of the bruises that I got.
And It wasn’t just me.
Many others too were subjected to this cruel act by the mankind (God knows better, why it’s man”kind” ). Others, who are not here to tell you the story of how I became alone, how, they all had to sacrifice themselves for the needs of one superior species.
Long back, there used to be many big families living together, of what it used to be called a “forest”, something about which generations would read in history books. Or wait, they won’t even have books to read in future as well. Digital world, I believe ?
Continuing my story of our lovely home, which was filled with many of my relatives and friends for generations, I just cannot describe in mere words as to how beautiful life was back then. After being born from one of the seedlings, as I grew up, life was all about living with the greenery all around me.
The chirps of those lovely birds and their songs, morning used to be so much heavenly. Not to forget the frequent rains which I used to love so much. I was told that we are the ones, who help in making rains happen (Proud Moment)! I was so happy to help in making something so beautiful like rains, happen.
Over the years, I heard that the gas we inhale is the one that human beings exhale, i.e. carbon dioxide and the gas we exhale, i.e., Oxygen, the humans inhale. An exchange offer!! So, we, the plants were the reasons which help the humans to breathe!!!
Around that time, there were strange news coming in from the outskirts of the forests, that the human population has been increasing day by day and as a result, they were clearing some of the areas of the forests. It was very strange for my young mind to understand as to why would they do that???!!!! Not only we , the trees, were the providers of oxygen (which helps them breathe), we also made the rains possible.
Water helps quench thirsts and makes the planet earth continue to be a living planet.
But who knew, that their thirst was not getting satisfied with water alone. They simply forgot the fruits, flowers and even medicines which we gave them.
Either, humans lost their mind or they have found an alternate to satisfy their needs and they no longer need us. The latter was not possible, so I believe they completely lost it. And yes, I was right.
With time, the human greed grew way too much. And it was just a matter of time that they would get rid of the entire green stretch.
And last morning, it finally happened.
So, that makes me the last one to be standing out here, just waiting for my turn to suffer the same fate which others like me did.
The bruises hurt a little. But what hurts more is the idiotic nature of humans, who has become selfish enough to have forgotten our contribution to his stay in this planet.
He is not just destroying us, but is digging his own grave.
[Deforestation is a serious issue that we no longer worry about, but need to. We have carelessly went on to cut a lot of our green stretch for our needs, which needs to stop. Yes, we do need to meet our requirements, but there is always a way. A sustainable way]
