Dark was the forest

Were the people heard a roar

Never heard before

So they cut down every tree

An still couldn’t find their fear

Such a waste! Think of all the life lost in that fallen forest.

They did the wrong thing by cutting the trees. They should have followed the sound.

I voted up, shared and pinned it.

This one really makes you think Martin! Do we ever really find the fear?
