Garden of Blessings

In the garden where plants grow
There are so many things we’d love to know
A flower that shines brightly
Deserves to stay lively

People do gardening in order to grow something
For we want to witness plants growing
Gardening may make us sweat
But it’s better than thrown cigarettes that could lead us to regret

In the forest where birds scream for freedom
For we are destroying their kingdom,
Forests are habitats for species
So let them be our buddies

Trees provide fresh air
That we need everywhere
People change like a flower’s bloom
Bringing hope like the garden’s summer bloom

Keeping our surroundings clean
And protecting the marine
Might be big responsibilities
But they give us good memories

We are complaining about our filthy environment
But think for a moment –
Do we deserve this punishment?

One thing that makes me wonder
Is what would happen to us in the future
If we continue to pollute much longer

Trees are continuously cut,
What if they make us shut?
Water is now contaminated,
What is they get back in revenge?
Our air is polluted,
What if our world got deleted?

Nature is our escape from everything
Especially when we are tired of working
Trees dancing
Flowers blooming
Birds tweeting,
Having their presence is a blessing
For they keep us away from stressing out.

We may never know what they’re saying
But we can feel what they’re conveying

Nature provides us laughter
And also color
It brings our families together
So we need to remember,
Nature deserves our love
And not our torture
We need to be lovers of nature
