When you need a mountain top
to close your eyes
to breathe in deeply
to exhale with a scream
and feel alive

when you need a forest
to get lost in
to leave everything behind
in that moment
and feel new

when you need a small kindness
a little smile
to feel appreciated
to feel needed

maybe just once

what if everyone in the world
maybe just once
climb that mountain top
walk that forest path
or just smile

maybe then
a spark of positivity
will wipe
an ocean of negativity and despair
so I wish to you world
that spark to creation…
