Nature within us – A poem

Nature within us


We are the same life force as the bugs and the grass

Just each given a different life span

Take care of life ,be aware of what is life

Unplug from the mains and find out you are alive

Swim in the sea, feel the wind in your face

Unplug from the mains, feel the earth at your feet


What s new on the market, to fill a void

The key to happiness is not from new toys

Or viewing on Instagram. keeping with trends

Their fake bum is better than yours, feel inadequate


So instead, take refuge, in blessing the sun,

Simple pleasures like kindness, friendship and love

How much more stuff do you need

human madness it is,.. When

More, we need more, when its never enough

No matter what happens, just stay on the path

Seeing all the beautiful autumn colours at the moment inspired me to do this one.
Its also means to stay on the path so you don’t get lost, whether that’s in a literal sense or lost in life if you don’t focus on your talents or dreams.

I can do commissions if anyone would like a larger size. This one is 30 cm x 40 cm, (12″ x 16″ )
