The Garden of Humanity

Each liken to a flower, shrub or tree
are the many shades of color, shape and size
in these beds of humanity.

As in nature perfection and imperfection abound
some tall, some short, some thin, some round.

With God's grace we breathe the sweetness of air.
With man's greed, lust, arrogance and lack of care
the breath of life becomes foul beyond compare.

Man's self importance like too much water rots our roots
and in time weakens and destroys all that is beautiful in

The Garden of Humanity.

    The funny part of this is I wrote this as a child of 13. When I became old enough to realize that all the things I had been taught as a child didn't really hold up in the real world. Thank you so much for your very kind words and review. TLee
