THE LITTLE THINGS
Life is so busy
You can hardly keep up
When we lose track we are lost
Lost in a world we have made
We don’t even know the way out
This world we have made is a mixture of things
From music to more important things.

But most important of all
Is finding a place to get caught up
Once and for all.
You’re new on track life
Won’t last long
So take a break from home

Get away to the wonderful Rockies
The beautiful lakes, rivers and trees.
Please yourself for once and enjoy the little things.
Forget about work and think about play,
Work can come another day.
Feel free to roam
And enjoy your life.
It doesn’t happen when you constantly face strife

You have recollected yourself
Time to head back work
When you get back there will surely be more burdens to carry
So come up and play another day
When you feel lost in your world
Of all work and no play.

A message for the young and the old alike
When you are feeling lost
Take a break
And enjoy the little things in life.

I am glad that you liked my poem.  My main goal was to inspire people.  Did it inspire you?

I have also read one of your peices and loved it.  Soon I will be posting a book on here, it is about an assasin.  I dont know what you like as far as liturature goes, but you may consider reading it.  I hope to keep in touch with you.  You are very supportive and are an inspiration to me and my work.  Thank you.
