Hours and hours wasted.
I simply don’t believe it. Hours I have spent, nurturing, tending, caring. All for what? It’s nothing short of a travesty. They looked beautiful, tumbling like brightly coloured hair. The different colours blending like an earthbound rainbow. I cherished my little ones, spared them from pests and diseases, never letting them go hungry. I placed them with love, ensuring each had enough room to grow, to reach their potential. I used all my skill, my years of experience, I gave them my all. All for this, my babies chopped and shorn, to make a living statue.
