Motorway Journey Home

Amidst the shrubs, the grass and trees
Paper boxes, tin cans and waste
Thrown from passing cars and trucks
As they travel unseeing in their haste.

But yet the sparks of life go on
For there amidst the troubled scene
A blade of grass, small shoots of flowers
Pushed their way up in between.

As man keeps punishing the earth
Nature responds to keep apace
Nurturing, protecting the life,
The future of the human race.
