Outside Your Door

Posted: May 23, 2014 in Poems, Thoughts, Uncategorized

Have you every stepped outside your door

And taken the time to explore

To see, to hear, to taste, to smell, to touch

The life, the soul, the spirit of the landscape

That surrounds us, envelopes us, wraps us up

In it’s all encompassing, inescapable blanket

Or do you step outside and take it all for granted

That as you are here, so will it be

As you live and breathe, so does the land

And you assume it will still be here long after you are gone

For your children, grandchildren and more

Nieces, nephews and cousins

And generations to come to enjoy

Dare you assume and take for granted

The beauty that surrounds us every day

Or do you realise

That one day it may be gone


And it cannot come back

We cannot rebuild it

For it is too late

And we have destroyed

Our beautiful planet……………………forever
