What if trees knew?

 What if trees knew that which we don't?
What if trees see more than we do?
What if trees see the generations come and go
And gets bowed down by the sadness they absorb?

Would we cut them down in anger
Try to wipe out their knowledge
Ignore their wisdom?

Would we fear the seeds they spread
The roots that remain and feed the earth
We try so hard to destroy?
