From my window I look;
Trees, mountains, flowers
All manner of things stare back at me
Though seldom do I notice.
Caught between the necessities of modern life
And the blindness of adulthood,
I’ve forgotten how wondrous my surroundings.
Rushing from place to place,
Highways, freeways, traffic shifts my focus.
Technology diverts my attention,
Cell phones, computers, television, video games,
No wonder we live in a chemically induce coma.
Time to appreciate the natural world seems impossible,
Finding excuses instead to perpetuate our unfulfilling lives.
How does this make any sense?
Our time in this beautiful world is short,
Time with our loved ones is most precious.
Perhaps the power button is our best friend,
Turn it off.
That vacation time we are saving
As we edge ever closer to a heart attack…
Maybe we should take it.
Step outside, take a deep breath
And enjoy the most beautiful video game ever created
