Do You See What I See? 

(A Poem Written From The Point Of View Of A Baby Gorilla) 

By Helen Bailey @bailey_hm @awild_Life

 

Do you see what I see? 

 

I see the rich colours of the forest constantly moving. 

I see life. 

 

I see the watery brown eyes of my mother. 

I see love. 

 

I see the tall forest canopy. 

I see abundance. 

 

I see the gentle stroke of my father’s hand. 

I see protection. 

 

I see the stars light the sky. 

I see comfort. 

 

Do you see what I see? 

 

I see rich forest colours turn into dusty browns. 

I see destruction. 

 

I see the distracted eyes of my mother. 

I see fear. 

 

I see forest canopy vanish. 

I see hunger. 

 

I see the wound where they took my father’s hand. 

I see despair. 

 

I see lights on the ground make the stars disappear. 

I see confusion. 

 

Do you see what I see? 

 

I see YOU. Do you see ME?
