Beautiful Disaster

Sleepless Night

Another sleepless night
I sit and stare
Up into the sky
Breathing in fresh air

I stare in awe
Of this beautiful sight
Grass glistens with dew
Stars shed their light

I just don't understand
How people can live their life
Filled with such things as
Worry and strife

They go on forever
Never taking a break
Only paying attention
To how much money they make
                    
What would the world be like
If every once in a while
People slowed down
Said hello, gave a smile

But people don't know
How to slow down anymore
Taking a break is considered
A chore

But maybe, just maybe
One person at a time
And with the help
Of this little rhyme

We can open their eyes
They make them see
How foolish they've been
Thinking only about "me"

They can view God's creation
And the wonders each one holds
Hearts will melt
Shoving out the cold

But for now I just
Sit and stare
Up into the sky
Breathing in fresh air
