In a world so full of wonder, I wonder how we forgot
to bow our heads in wonder at the beauty that’s our lot.
We come to this planet Earth as visitors for a short time;
the way we behave as guests is nothing short of a crime.
We blunder through like sleeping herds of elephants running wild,
we run amok without a care, we’re worse than an errant child.
to stop and smell the roses and understand where beauty lies;
it lies in the world around us; it’s in the beholders eyes.
Lets take a while and feel it; immersed in being alive;
accept each day and its wonder, there’s no need to strive.
