Locked up in the house,
I feel nothing but dismay,
How long until we can go out,
Have the bad times come to stay?
Then I peek outside the window
To witness a wonderous sight,
In the pale blue sky I see
White birds taking flight.
I can smell the fragrant lavenders
Waving to me from the garden,
All these things have come
To soften hearts which harden.
I lie on the soft bed of grass
Beneath the trees outside my porch,
Then I venture around in the dark at night
With my fingers around a torch.
I see the tiniest of creatures
Working hard the most,
Moving against all odds
Is the strength they can boast.
The plants flower everyday
And the butterflies relish their sweet nectar,
They cast away all fears
Because nature is their protector.
Acceptance of life and faith in nature
Shows the silver lining of the future.
The undaunted spirit to survive
Breaks the strongest of shackles,
Nature renders my life with hope
And the credence of miracles.
