Roses

Things are happening so fast,
With no time to stop and smell the roses.
Can't you see,
That we will never have time to stop and see the beauty that lies beneath?
People are crying out to us,
And we can't help them because we have places to go and to be.
Why not,
Come with me and take a walk in the park?
I can't you say,
I have an appointment to go to.
Can't you just skip an appointment for once?
You finnaly agree,
And take a walk in the park.
While walking in the park,
We see things you would have never seen if you had gone to the appointment.
So,
Take time off to stop and smell the roses.

I like this. But there's something about that I think you should work on. The flow. As I was reading this, it seemed to sound like you were listing lines. And close to the end, where you repeat park so close together, try to avoid from doing that. But keep writing. This is good.
