What a beautiful world, what a beautiful place,
I see such a beauty in every face.
As they rush around and hurry by,
They can’t take the time to catch my eye.
I want to grab and shake them hard,
but they speed right by in their shiny cars.
I finally yell and scream out loud,
STOP a moment and look around.
There is so much beauty and so much love,
so many blessings from above.
But how can you see it when you go so fast,
it instantly turns into your past.
Stop for a moment to see what’s around,
listen to all the wonderful sounds.
There is more to life than work and stress,
You’re really missing the very best.
Take time for yourself to do what you love,
after all, you are special, a gift from above.
