To Give Life - Poem by Lyn Paul

Luxurious homes with plasma TV'S
Boats Jetski's to travel the incredible sea's
Ipads, Iphones and everything remote control
The latest cars travelling high speed increasing road toll.
A wardrobe full of clothes that we really barely wear
We throw things out, with the tiniest tear

The list goes on... yet we don't need a list
We just need to know why we really exist
It's to give life to our children and other human beings
Appreciate the day and what can be seen
Trees, birds, just to watch life grow
We need to teach our children about really living, about tomorrow.
The gadgets are important but not as important as today
We need to find the balance before our real living is taken away

    Great philosophy Lyn, we are so wrapped up with our possessions and this buy, buy, buy society, that we forget what is really of value and worth having, such as friendship and love. (Report)Reply

    We fall in a mirage of materialistic, it looks so realistic to hold in our life but it deceive us about what life true is..because it wider than we can see. A nice shot on mind Lyn! _Soul (Report)Reply

    Nice poem Lyn, you describe my sister to a 'T' with her i-pad & i-phone & gadgets. I prefer the simpler life where nature can be appreciated. (Report)Reply
