Watch the World

Sitting on a park bench,

And watch the world go by,

Not a lot of time for anyone to stop and ask for a reason why.


Barely even noticed,

Without saying a word,

The world is so busy,

Making us ruthless and cold.


Doing your best is rarely enough,

And when you give,

they always want more.


Remember to breathe,

Remember to lie,

Remember that it is a game,

And how to get through this life.


Then from the corner of an empty life,

A mother reaches out and holds her child tight.


A calm is collected,

I am eager to believe

That there is more to life than famine and disease


Care and love,

She wipes his tear,

She knows that this won’t last,

As the days become years.


Smiles as he turns around,

He waves back at her.

Watching him leave,

Is truly the pain that hurts.


As he disappears and out of her sight,

She hangs her head and lets out a sigh,


Strength isn’t never saying a word,

Or yelling when you haven’t been listened to and been ignored.


It isn’t being a stone,

or allowing your soul to turn cold.

It is feeling what is important,

And allowing in our world.


Life allows for tears and it allows for pain,

it brings happy moments,

Just as it has brought us all shame.


But as I look around,

I know what I feel,

and I know that I am meant to be,

And I am more than real


I am someone’s hope,

Someone’s guide,

I am someone’s someone special

And because of that I will never be empty inside.


The mistakes were not grand,

The pleasure was sometimes pain.

Then a little child gave me perspective,

And then he showed me the way.


As much as I teach him,

As much as I carry him

I would not be me again,

If I didn’t love him.


He doesn’t have a clue,

The love in my heart,

And I know if I lost him,

I would fall apart.


Sitting on a park bench,

Looking at the world,

I sit back and smile, and enjoy being alone.


People are still moving fast,

In hurry to get somewhere.

I’m taking my time enjoying life,

For as long as I am still here.

Hi H.C., A very well versed point and people should heed what to say here. As the old saying goes, "be sure to stop and smell the roses on the road to life". Even if the world is going by you too fast, that doesn't mean you yourself can't slow down and enjoy life because tomorrow will be here before you know it. I also enjoyed the pictures with the captions that say a lot too. Very well done H.C. Greg

thanks for the compliment...and you hit the nail on the head, if you dont learn to slow down and see what truly matters, you are going to go so fast that you will miss life and the enjoyment that can be experienced in it.

Sorry about the last comment, sure I had not commented earlier (I checked my hub activity). But of course I had read your fine composition. I watched the world with your eyes and found it very beautiful.

ahorseback-cant believe I missed your comment, thanks for reading and for giving some feedback. your comments are also, always very uplifting. I think that someday's I struggle with kids and with relationships, just as most do, but I always try to keep a honest outlooks and overlook at what the meaning of all this is and what is truly important in this world and within my life.

LCaverson- thank you! I suppose a mother is easily spotted, at least when seen by another mother. We have a certain perspective that can not be understood by the outside, I think as mothers we care, feel, have concern, and are afraid of very different things than others are. Thank you for your comment and for taking the time to read. I appreciate the feedback :)

kids are so great at enjoying the little things. Nature brings us such delight if we decide to stop and experience it. Thanks for the reminder. Take care, Kelley

Its a wonderful poem written about your son, children are dear to me, and so I have connected with this poem in many ways, as a child I had a great deal of emotional issues, but they were all good ones for sure.

I was truly attached to my mother, and my dad wasn't in the family portrait after I turned 5, but it drew me much closer to my mother.

After reading this poem it made me feel that same feeling gain of closeness, thanks H.C. porter for being such a passionate writer, and poet.

It helps to read words that are crafted from the heart, and sewn with perfection by the soul. Your a genuine artistic person too for that awesome video, I love your videos, and maybe you have a huge business there with the making of them, if not already.

Awesome hub! Sharing has been activated. Cheers!!!!
