(Written at age 14-15.)

Sanctuary! For you, oh trees,
Who, for supporting our lives, are chopped down.
Go hide somewhere, for upon their follies,
Men are too arrogant to frown.

Sanctuary! For you, oh animals,
Who, for nothing but vanity, are hunted and shot.
Go hide somewhere, for fake laurels
Are all that man has got.

Sanctuary! For you, oh humans,
The only self-destructing race.
Go hide somewhere, and from the shamans,
Save your guilty face.
