The Natural World: A Poem

Green.

Brown.

Wet.

Sunlight.

Canopies of trees,

fields of grass.

Animals, all shapes,

sizes, and species roam.

Orange, red, yellow, blue.

The natural world encompassed all.

Awe inspiring.

The city is unnatural, fabricated.

Nature is pure, original.

The world of nature is the beginning,

and the end.

In the natural world is where I want to be.

Subject To Change: A Poem

Subject to change,

everything is.

Plans, agendas,

an itinerary, all can be forgotten.

Time changes, things change, places change.

People, most importantly, are subject to change.

Nothing is truly certain.

Emotions change.

Situations change.

Most importantly,

people are subject to change.

I’ve changed.

I think you’ve changed.

Together, we are still the same.

Our relationship, always,

will be subject to change.

But together, we will stay the same.

For eternity is better lived in peace.
