Together We Will Fall

I am the creature with five-thousand limbs
and my arms can touch the sky.
I am the being who exhales only life
and inhales the toxic cloud.
I am the entity who supports the lives,
a billion beating hearts.
I am the enigma explained by the soul
and proved by heart and mind.

I know that you do need me,
but still the axes come.
I know that you can feel me,
but the earth is scoured clean.
I know that you can't hate me
but my limbs fall one by one.

But you don't understand!
For every limb you cut,
every arm you break,
every time I fall,
you fall with me.

And together we will tumble,
man and nature,
black and white,
yin and yang,
lost forever
in eternity.
