"What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.
Robert Green Ingersoll

When I look up to the blue sky,
when I look down deep into the dark ocean,
when I look around at the grass and flowers,
I can sense a thrive to survive,
a thrive to be noticed.
A thrive to be called "beautiful."


When I look at the high trees crowning the sky,
to the magma chambers of the depths of the earth,
to the animals scurrying on the lush undergrowth of the woods,
I can feel an urge to get attention,
an urge to not be destroyed,
An urge to show the world what nature's beauty can contain and share.


When I feel and sense this, I think Humans can be like this too.
You might wonder, How can humans be like this?
Humans also thrive to survive,
thrive to be noticed,
Thrive to be called "beautiful."
Humans urge to get attention,
urge to not be destroyed,
Urge to show the world what beauty humans can share and contain.


Nature doesn't want to be cut down, destroyed by war, caught on fire by nuclear bombs, or polluted with bad air.


Humans don't want to be bullied, destroyed by people who are divorced, drugged, neglecting, nor worked to death like a slave, or be polluted with nuclear air, or even be malnourished.


Perhaps we should help out each other and the world would be a much better place.

I'm not sure if I'm a great poet, so I decided to swing it since I love to write poetry. Let me know how I'm doing!
