Sun shining through the pines Illuminating a path for me to take I walk slowly as I embrace each step Feeling the inner peace I long for Such beauty here in my FOREST OF LIFE Knowing it's there, I close my eyes I remember my youth and cherish those times I felt safe And now.... The leaves are turning just as time is passing Life is changing and I can't stop it from doing so People are leaving this good earth and a sadness passes over my soul But I know that I'm still in my FOREST OF LIFE My inspiration for this came from a photo I was sent (kl), It immediately made me think of how beautiful a Forest is and how nature is the true FOREST OF LIFE. The beauty of life that is right in front of your eyes, sometimes we know it is there but we can't see it or feel it. Sometimes the Forest is thin and easy to navigate and sometimes it is grown over, dark, and thick, heavy to get through But you keep pushing because it's beauty never ends, it keeps going. Always push through your FOREST OF LIFE, and your beauty will remain FOREVER.
