By Michelle Pontiff -
The forest is the place I love to be.
It's where I can just be me.
When I'm there I feel peace and serenity.
I know that nature holds my destiny.
The forest, full of beauty, beholds such mystery.
Flourished with joyous animals of all sorts rejoicing merrily.
Trees with emerald leaves seem to glisten in the sunlight.
Oh, what it would have taken to bring about such life, created with such
What I need to make me whole, the forest is the key.
To protect what I love is my duty.
Forever I will sing the forest's song.
For that is where I belong.
