A Dying ForestI took flight and flew over the damaged forestPainted with the color of death like a tortured artistOnly to see my home that stood 300 feet highTortured cut threw until it collapsed and diedForced to fly to the other sideNow instead of rain, ashes that look like small snow surrounds my eyeI see a thick red fire covering what was once a home that stood on its own.I hear the screams of dying friendsThe mysterious owl, who is burning alive protecting her kids.What is happening? I do not understand the drawn out war between animals and manIronically, the battle field is over a piece of land?They have murdered my son and daughter and captured my mother and father.And poured thick black oil in my waters by the harborThey have killed my desires and forced me to fly higherAbove the clouds and under the stars is the only sanctum where I can pause and think of the cause, while reflecting on my loss.How could a country, which honors my name kill and destroy my family in vain.Leaving me alone to deal with the painIf the American Eagle stands for liberty then I need a new name
