Plants 'Grass' or People

Probably the hurting 
feeling felt
by plants/ in particular, 
grass/ as
people trample, stumble, 
step, cut
and kill/ Being touched, 
kissed and cherished 
'they' need
to feel/ like flowers are 
cared for/
so do 'they' crave care 
even more/
but no one seems to care 
at all/
attached to atleast a wall/ 
exit that door/ 'they' 
engage in
prior preparation for 
pain/ fear of
change is another factor/ 
fear of
the unknown, as soon as 
the door
opens, 'they' tremble/ for 
fear of
been stumbled upon/ But 
keeps 'them' going is the 
fact that
'they' were created for a 
to beautify the earth and 
provide that fresh oxygen 
the day/ that's 'their' 
So I sat and thought, " I 
might feel
low, sick, poor, lonely, 
and not cared for. There's 
hope for beautiful days to 
Flipped through the New
Testament and found 1 
1:13. God bless....
