Roses

I sit calmly in the state of shock, disgusted by my generation.

Precious life that so many struggle to have, kicked aside like a soccer ball.

Abusing the temple of our body.

We the youth, blinded by stardom and greatness, not stopping to realize what is more important.

The laughter, smiles and cherished moments a time capsule of many years ago.

That we once relished and held so dearly to our heart, melted away by the hot blood in our skin.

Step back, and take a look within, not just in ourselves, but of our past.

Life is moving too quickly, we need to stop and smell the roses.

    I agree with you Damali, we need to find a way to slow down so we can become aware of where we are heading, and whom we encounter in our lives, we need to be the difference we would like to see in the world, Hugs vie
