Survive together

Like these two trees, in a society, we are joined by our common interest. So survival of one is survival of all. But when we selfishly try to take more than our due, we not only harm others, but ourselves too.


We are joined by our common heritage 
If I want to survive, I need to save you too
For without you I won’t last long in this world either
We have a symbiotic relationship, supporting each other
Knowing this undeniable truth, why then you do what you do
Sawing off my roots thinking that it’ll give you more
More room, more nourishment or even more attention
If we survive and grow, together we will be stronger
If I die, you won’t survive for long without me
