Be there







If the mango tree could speak

If the mango tree could speak, it would be honest.

It would tell us how it feels inside.

It would touch our hearts

and we would know what is good and bad.

It would talk about my people and say how they live.

It would talk about my broken heart of memories,

My broken heart of my past

My broken heart

Hearing people cry for their relatives.

If the mango tree could speak it would weep with the fear of thousands of years.

If the mango tree could speak it would say

that the people are beautiful

and that they have love to give.

It would say, "Help the poor people."

It would sing

"Hope lives on.

Peace can come

Wave its banner in my leaves."

If the mango tree could speak, it would say, "I love you."

The mango tree would tell the truth.
