Looking up at the sky as the birds fly by on a hot sunny day thinking about my plans and what I
plan on doing for the day, watching cars by pass one by one seeing the trees blow and the wind.

moment experiencing time outside to myself feels good and would start being done more often
starring at the pond thoughts come to mind weird but gloomy thoughts that has never been
there before thinking about good times and hold times and grievings of lost that I have took.
Night falls mood changes and things go down heel getting worse news and aggravated
throughout the day to let all the pain in anger I sit outside no phone, no music and no company
just me thinking about what life would be like if things changed hearing crickets and the
loud dogs barking eager and willing to know and explore more I get up from where I am sitting
circle around the house not to go far in the dark night watching the moon shine down with its
crest shape coming out of trans of thought I see a pretty white rabbit wanting to get closer and

Being alone and feeling like you have no one late
at night on a dark gloomy night seeing the darkest side of yourself. Tears roll down thinking am
I cold hearted and evil or its just I care for one too much, many people have a good side and a
Dark side and many cant controls neither side but life with nature can calm you down even at
Your darkest moments. Take the time to sit outside experience what nature feel like when
You are down see what it feels like to be off your phone and experience things trying that
For the first time helped me a lot and I will surely do it more often to get fresh air and
keep all negativity off my mind when my anger is taking over from things that have been
said and as I sit and think to myself everything thats racing through my mind will remain
