A Walk on the Other Side

by Brianna G. Harte

A walk into the forest

With the rustle of the leaves

Brings one into a new mindset

One created by tranquility.

For the world is at a balance

And the animals they share

A community born of survival instinct

Not monetary affairs.

So they focus on their families,

A brood to someday leave their side

Making the strong stronger

And train them all with pride.

Some men walking in the cities,

Simply speaking through a phone,

Seem to miss what truly matters

Thinking only of what they own.

Although they may call ‘savage’

Those who reside in the woods,

Perhaps they could learn from them

More than they think they could.

A life thinking of a paycheck

And not of those that grow

Can cause one to forget what’s important,

Those that they truly know.
