The Reflection of Life

Prosperity amounted in due time.
How can trees bloom in one day?
We say 'move along now'.
'Hurry quickly to your destination'.

Abundance takes time to grow.
Does a babe grow old in one day?
Often thinking 'I cannot wait'.
'Until they are older'.

Wealth not built in our lives.
How can a plant produce fruit in one day?
We water it hoping, 'it'll mature faster'.
"If it has its thirst quenched'.

Love not gained by words alone.
Does a wild horse trust in one day?
We pull and tug thinking, 'It will listen'.
"Give me time to break them.'

Tranquility not found in war.
Does a bee find peace in its sting?
We think, 'We will have peace'.
'After we tear apart a country'.

Harmony not heard in chaos.
Does a song bird screech as a crow?
Pushing through life in a hurry believing, 'Life is short'.
'Why waste a second?

Respect not seen in this generation.
Does the young not rise for the elder?
Often thinking, 'Why should I?'.
'Respect when not respected?'.

One day, this all will fade.
Our lives over and gone.
How will we have spent our time?
Will we have accomplished?
All that we hoped to in a lifetime?
