Missing Out On Beauty

Missing Out On Beauty

I cannot help you
As much as I want to
I just can’t
You’re in a world
Where beauty doesn’t exist
You cannot look at a flower
Read a poem
Or look at a painting
Money is your life
The only thing you love
More than your heart
More than your family
More than what you should feel
Have you seen your daughter’s drawing
The one on the fridge
She made it for you
But you were too busy to see it
Have you heard the poem from the boy next door
He put his whole heart into it
But you won’t listen
Some things are more important
They will make you smile
Brighten your heart and soul
Take the time to look and listen
See what the world has to offer
The money will still be there
But someday your daughter will not draw
The poet will no longer write
That will be a day part of the world dies
And you will not notice
