Sacrifice- 2

A banyan tree

spreads itself widely

suck water from deep soil

spreads roots

to keep itself live

for hundreds of years

stands in all season without

any trouble

even if its rain, summer or winter

for what

for protecting men from sunlight

for protecting men from heavy rain

for protecting earth soil to wash out

due to heavy rain

for protecting others

How the banyan tree sacrifices its life

for hundreds of years

for others

What a sacrifice!!!

Big Sacrifice

    very nice poem mama, but please don’t mind I have one suggestion for spelling mistake, it is banian or banyan instead of baniyan.
