Begin again? New Beginnings

#writephoto

We were given a treasure
So beautiful and unique
Something to be marveled at
Full of secrets and mystique

Trees, mountains, and seas so vast
Valleys, lush and green
What more could human beings have asked

Lakes so still, with mountainous reflection
Reality or dreaming
Life, humans, universe are experiencing perfection

The quiet, nature,
stop for a moment
Just listen

as a river flows
as the wind blows
Falling snows
Watch
As a flower grows
The suns glows
The pleasure this world bestows
Sadly
Gratitude the world no longer shows

What have we done?

We are chopping down all our trees
Antarctic Ice sheet is melting
Plastic, litter fills our seas

Pollution fills the air and hides our skies
Where is our treasure
our wonderful paradise

This world was a masterpiece
Something to be cherished
Unappreciated
Greed
Our world has perished

Are we ashamed
Do we mourn
Some weep, some sigh
We are left feeling forlorn

Can we be forgiven for human sinnings
Change our ways, mend our world
Begin again, new beginnings
