People do not often stop to take a look
At what they have already seen before
They do care of how the trees change color
Or how a mushroom might think
If possibly it could speak

Humans think they know all
But they are blind to the world around
They care only about themselves
And how they will benefit in the end

They search though life
Always looking for something new
And extraordinary
But they do not yet realize
If they would just open their eyes and ears
That the simple things are the greats of all

A colony of ants living together
The leaves changing color in the fall
How cars would look if you saw them
In a different point of view
Or what a thumbprint really is

The most extraordinary are the things you have already seen
But not truly seen
One day the world will open their eyes and see
The extraordinary is in
The little things

Thanks for the comment I got the idea from my Lit teacher! Who knew I had the ability to actually write something randomly off the top of my head.

Favorite Quote:

"i don't suffer from insanity. i enjoy every minute of it."
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” -Marianne Williamson. Trying so hard to believe this but SO not succeeding…..

I love how you wrote a poem about the little things humans are too lazy to notice. What an amazing and unique topic! Also, the last stanza that says, "The most extraordinary are the things you have already seen/ but not truly seen," leaves a lasting impression on readers. Keep up the good work! :)
