That what I know going on out there
Now I’m asking this old oak tree 200 year I presumed
What did he know?
1816 that when he were born
Who planted you?
Who watered you?
You did it all by yourself?
You have been living till this day
What did you see?
What people did beside you?
Are they trying to took you down?
Kids play under your shadow?
Couples sat by your root?
Some one used you to hang himself?
Boys carved girls name on you?
Have you protected soldiers behind you?
Did some one urinate on you?
How was the toughest weather?
I hope you saved someone life

Asking you all this you can not tell me
Some one will ask you again
That time he might understand you
