Stop to smell the flowers…. (Stop)

This photo was taken on April 17, 2007 at Bay Area Park in Nassau Bay, Texas, US, using an HP PhotoSmart R817.

stop and smell the flowers

With our lives so busy
We fail to notice
Things around us
Things, we take for granted
Cause we know
It will be
Tomorrow and the day next

Flowers for instance,
Grow quietly,
Unknowingly,
Spreading its warmth and joy to everyone and anyone

But do we once
Stop and smell the flowers

No instead
We pluck them,
We tramp them,
We throw them,
And we walk passed them

Never do we praise its beauty,
Selflessly,
And lovingly.

That’s because we are too absorbed
In our very own machine-like lives, that
We refuse to notice anything but ourselves!

So I plead to you now,
Stop and smell the flowers
Before it’s too late!
