Compassion for a rock

We take rocks for granted
unearthing them when planted
they get in the way of growing roots
and stop the plant’s precious shoots
but when we use rock for buildings
we don’t need to really kill things
like trees for wood or wool for rugs
before they're killed they get hugs
but rocks and stones on this planet
we just take them for granite.
