Dear Trees: SORRY




NOTE: I AM REALLY HEART BROKEN AND I REALLY CRIED BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED TODAY. A GROUP OF DEVELOPER CUT DOWN THE TREES THAT I CLIMBED WHEN I WAS A KID. THEY CUT DOWN THE TREES SURROUNDING OUR HOUSE. THEY CUT THEM DOWN AND I AM VERY SADDENED BY THE TRUTH THAT I AM NOT GOING TO SEE THEM ANYMORE WHEN I RETURN HOME. MY HEART CRIES FOR THE STUPIDITY OF THESE PEOPLE. WHY CUT THOSE TREES? WHY CUT THE VERY DEAR CREATURES WHICH GIVE THEM LIFE? WHY CUT THEM DOWN WHEN THEY DON’T DO ANY HARM? I AM ANGRY! I WANT TO CUT THE ARMS OF THOSE WHO CUT MY TREES. MY TREES. THEY ARE MY TREES. THEY HAVE BEEN MY FRIENDS SINCE CHILDHOOD! I ACCEPT NO VALID REASONS NOR EXPLANATIONS FOR CUTTING THEM DOWN! DAMN THIS THING THEY CALL DEVELOPMENT! DAMN THE SHITTY MULTI-PURPOSES WHERE CORRUPTION HAPPENS! DAMN! DAMN! DAMN!

Dearest trees who have been a part of my childhood,

As I am writing this letter, my are shedding tears for the fate that has been bestowed to you by my greedy fellowmen. Please forgive me for not being there. Forgive me for being thousand miles apart from you. Forgive me if this is the only thing I can do for you.




I am so sorry that I am powerless to save your lives. I am so sorry because I wasn’t able to give back the things you have given me since I was young. Thank you for sheltering me when my playmates wouldn’t want to play with me. Thank you for making my teeth ache ache and for making me full when I ate your fruits. Thank you for the fresh air you gave. Thank you for everything.

I know writing this cannot bring your lives back but I hope as other people read this, their minds and hearts will be touched and awakened. You might be ordinary trees to other people but to me, you are so special. So dear special and I’d never trade you for money. I’d never accept thousands nor millions of money in exchange of your dear life. Your life, for me, is more precious than mine pr than any other’s. You have lived before I was born and it is because of you than I and the whole humanity exist. Please always remember that you matter. You matter to me. You matter to people. It just so happened that some of our kind like to take and take without giving anything. The money they will get from cutting you is also made of you. I am so sorry they had to take your life. They are just so incapable of understanding how important you are.




Thank you for giving us life.

Thank you my dear trees.

Thank you.




I promise, I will plant more of your kind. I promise I will bring you back to life. I know the new ones I will plant is not the same us you but I promise they’ll never suffer the same fate as you.

That, I swear.

Forever, I will remember all of you. Forever.

Please forgive those men who hurt you. Please forgive them who chose money first before you. Please forgive them who were not contented of the air you gave for them to breathe and continue living. Please forgive them who hit you with the chainsaw, who cut you to your smallest veins. Forgive them. I know you will.

I love you dear trees!

Love,

Roselyn Mae
