Walking around i see,
the wonderful contrasts that make us,
the world
and the universe.
The bee buzzing as it flies intently from flower to flower,
to the bird that swallows it.

First, i see the good and the bad.
The good shines like a new born star,
emitting radiance for all to see.
When you look into it,
you see it’s story, it’s past.
Just like looking at the stars in space.
You are looking back in time,
to when that light shone.
The bad dulls this light.
The past holds it,
whilst the future tethers it.
This bright star can not last,
Sooner or later it must dim out.

Secondly i see the present.
The clouds gliding silently overhead,
fluffy, hypnotizing.
The cows grazing in the field,
feeding their young.
My brothers asleep in their beds,
innocence fills their dreams.
happiness fuels their dreams.
Me sitting at this computer,
smelling the fresh grass,
gazing upwards to those twinkling diamonds.
The atmosphere fazing out the rays, creating the twinkle.
Magic looming down.
In the present i feel happiness.

Laslty, i see what it will all become.
Everything must die.
everything must fade.
My brothers will grow up, and grow old.
My parents will live on only in memory
and then fade.
That twinkle will go,
but it will be replaced.
New innocent minds,
New cows,
New clouds,

So i end with a message.
Remember the past ,
but don’t let it hold on to your life,
Look forward to the Present,
but must of all,
live for now.
Take that daring step because soon your life will dim.
Make now exciting, earn from the past,
Make now and your future your priority.
It is never to late.
No regrets, No turning back.
Life is short.
So live for now.
