I wrote this poem when i was out in the country. Although, amongst the beauty of nature, i witnessed something that happened to a bunny, which i found quite upsetting.
It made me think about how precious life is and to appreciate what we have, because it can end at any time, just like this rabbit's life did while it was innocently eating some food.
This poem, however, is not negative at all.
may your days be filled with sunshine
and your nights with twinkling stars
may you wake up everyday and value who you are
may you have the chance to go out bush and find some tranquil time
to be away from the stresses of life and find peace within your mind
and to wake up to the soulful tunes of birds singing a happy song
and hear them call out to their relatives, for them to merry-ly sing along
and may you have the chance to walk along the beach, while the ocean air cleanses your aura, as the sand massages your feet
and as you stand there looking out to sea
with your skin being tickled by the gentle breeze
may you appreciate the abundant life and activity
that live beneath the ocean sheathe
and as you leave the beach
may you feel refreshed and revived
after breathing in the fresh, cleansing air
and you feel great to be alive
and may you appreciate the vibrant beauty of a flower as it blooms
and it's colours and smell radiate your senses
and brings a smile when feeling gloom
and to enjoy the beauty of a dew drop as it drips upon a leaf
and glistens in the sunlight until it evaporates in the heat
and when going to bed at night
feeling warm and cosy beneath the sheets
may you be thankful,
you're not living on the streets
and that you have no fear and are able to sleep
and may you give compassion to all living beings
whether an ant or human, they all have feelings
to give love without wrong expectations is the true meaning of the word
and to live without judgements
these are just some of our learning curves
and to acknowledge that desire is the key to all suffering
so before acting upon it
think if there's anyone you'll be harming
and may you appreciate having intelligence and being physically and mentally able to enjoy the beauty around us
and to be living in a country that's relatively stable
and may you appreciate the warmth of a smile
that appears on someone's face
either given or received
is something that can never be taken or erased
so forget about the trivial things in life
for at any moment, can come death
it's as close as being
on the other side of a wall
after the mere cessation of breath
so don't be despondant about the negativities in life and things that can't be changed
acknowledge the beauty within one's self
and what mother nature has to offer
and by giving to the less fortunate
helps to ease one's own pain
and may you always have a life
that's filled with PEACE, LOVE, and harmony.
luv me :)
