A Poem I Wrote

So, I wrote this sorta uplifting poem, and I thought I'd share it here in case someone needs to hear its message. It's probably my favorite poem I've written. It's called "If Every Creature Ceased to Know Their Worth" I posted it in the Member's Gallery but I feel like more people might see it if I post it here.

Oh, how sweet is the song of a songbird,
How elegantly they soar.
How swift is the speed of a cheetah,
How mightily they roar.

The fox's wit is quick,
The owl's wisdom is vast.
The porcupine's needles stick,
The tree's shadow is cast.

Everything in nature has its place,
And you, my dear, do too.
Don't ever think that you are worthless,
For that simply isn't true.

If the birds thought they couldn't sing,
Their songs we'd never hear.
If the crickets believed their chirps were annoying,
They would cease to fill our ears.

Could you imagine a world where every creature
Ceased to know their worth?
Could you imagine a world with silent nature
With no music to bring forth?

Even the insects burrowed deep in the ground
Know their importance is true.
If the songbird can sense the beauty in its sound,
Then why, my dear, can't you?

InfiniteRectangles, thanks so much for sharing your poem. I really like it. I can see why it's your favorite. I use to write poetry before the medications.
