You might not hear it
But its there
Its everywhere
Even the harmony of the birds chirping
The thrumming of a bees wings against its body
The smooth sound of the wind rustling through the trees
Put it together and hear it
If you just listen closely
But no,
You won’t take the time
You’re too caught up in the moment
Too focused on the destination
Not the journey
Always waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel
Not even seeing the adventure around you in the dark
Dark, the unexplored parts of your life
You say you have no time for it
But only if you knew
Only if you could appreciate natures beauty
Nature’s gift to us
You need to slow down
Your life's in the fast lane
I wish you would listen
Music is all around you
If only you could hear it

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Ah! If only we could hear it!  A good piece.
