The poem is below.


Camping beneath the shimmering stars
Makes me realise how insignificant we really are

The moonlight gently caressing the world outside a canvas door
Such a beautifu, calm picture, I often find myself longing for

In the wilderness, back to nature
Far from the ever growing lights of the town
Away from the hussle and bussle, far from every thing that makes me frown

The peace, the tranquillity 
Time to consider your own reality 
Following the natural cycles of the earth
Some how reconnects you to your own self worth

Sleeping from dusk till Dawn
Being woken by the birds morning song
