Only one left standing
by Faith Melton

My friends,
They’re lifeless stubs,
Jutting from the ground
I can’t recall how they looked
How they sounded
As the breeze
Touched their long arms
Making them rustle and creak
I stand alone
In an area of vast emptiness
My friends, murdered before me
Chopped, slugged, and pulled down
And I am Regretfully
The only one left standing

Still standing, despite all circumstances.. Strenght combined with loneliness, for being the only one left standing. Great post!!

Sometimes all it takes is "ONE"..... One with strength and perserverance can move mountains!
