The sun has risen,
just like every day.
Most of the time,
we take that for granted.

We get out of bed,
continue the rest of the day.
Like every day,
without taking the conscious effort that is a new day.

The sun has set,
just like every day.
Most of us will be relieved.
Some of us will be disappointed.
For others the day has yet to end.

When will we ever take the effort,
the effort to appreciate mother nature?
To be thankful for these small things.

That’s why we humans never learnt.
