The Tree in the Forest by Anthony J Sargeant, April 2014

Standard

The Tree in the Forest

 

Tony no longer exists

He never existed

Except in another’s

perception

 

There is no existence

Beyond the imaginings

Of another

 

We are alone

Like the tree

In the forest

 

Which only exists

When seen by another

Whether or not they

Care matters not

 

Just a fragment

Of fleeting percept

Making no special mark

Upon the earth

 

Just dust that crumbles

And is forgotten

Within a generation

No longer mourned

 

And so it is

Accept it

Do not strive

To overturn

Or resist

Just surrender

To your fate

……  oblivion.
