Poetry by Jeff Green


Take your time

The beauty that we capture every day
Is hard to understand, so we don’t try.
We see such sights as this and walk on by,
Rarely does a vision make us stay.

We cannot stop to gaze we are too shy 
Of showing that we have a tender side
The real questions that we all deny
Are asked and answered by the man inside

So stop today and look at all you see
What are the things for which you’ve always cried
The ways you know you never really strived
To find out what it is to really be

Take time today to stand and to inspect
The many things that cause us to reflect
