Favorite Quote:
"The poor world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time there was not any man died in his own person, videlicit in a love cause....Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not for love." William Shakespeare

I feel the nature run through my veins,
it sparks the life inside me.
I see the nature encompass my sight,
it's why the world is turning.

My life is on the balance of life and death,
one tilt my way and she will surely die.
If she could fight back I'm sure she would,
but a bit her way and we feel overpowered by The All.

Her power never ceases to aid our existence,
she provides the life, she provides the people.
Graciously given and selfishly taken,
this gift of life holds a bitter reflection.

So honor the greens and browns and blues,
find peace in the calm waters and waves.
Respect the energy that wraps around you,
and then look upon The All.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece as an assignment for my AP English class about my connection with nature. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that we live in a world that is constantly battling the place that gives us everything.
