I

The animals flee,

Machinery replaces the peaceful calm,

Men destroy a forest for commercial gains,

Always taking from a world they think they own,

Nature is fading

II

Flowers blossom again,

Bird song breaks the silence,

A new sprout peeks through the soil,

I walk slowly in the vast expanse and remember,

Nature always prevails.
