Most Never see The Flowers
and post notes and photos about your poem like sidney dugan.
Some folk want to be something
They have their dreams of fame
They never seem to understand
That life, it be a game
Most don’t do too much thinking
Just tag behind the herd
It seems by life their hearts are never stirred.
Most never see the flowers
All sparkling in the sun
They let the beauty pass them by
Asleep most every one
Their minds all filled with the strife of life
Their lives they lack something
They do not know that life can make their heart sing.
Yet all of this is not for me
I want to be here endlessly
Drinking in this song of life
Living till my time be rife.
Some folk worship riches
And yearn to have it all
Because of this they never see
This world so beautiful
Though it gleams like mystic stardust
It never stirs their soul
Perhaps these folk weren’t destined to be whole
