It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold...
or something much more colorful like that.
It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord'nary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.
But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain,
or tall like a tree.
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why,
but why wonder why? Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.
________________________________________Earth Day is next Wednesday and in it's honor I'll be doing several eco-posts next week. It's not always easy being "green" but it's not that difficult either. My family does a few small things that I hope add up and make a difference. It's important for my boys and their would-be kids and their would-be kids.
I'll also be doing another giveaway...but this time I'll make you work for it. Because our planet is worth it, because our kids are worth it...
