It is now 5:45 pm est. and I am going to attempt to write a poem in the next 15 minutes, right before your eyes.
Each step we take on life’s given path
will be forever lost to time
if we don’t reflect upon the mark
that it leaves behind.
Footprints are soon washed away
if not noticed for their worth.
if not only by ourselves are seen
and by our precious, Mother Earth.
