The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Run into the forest,
Run into a meadow,
Run over the hills,
Run alongside a river,
Run away, Run away,
Far, far away,
Where no soul
Can disturb this little piece of heaven

And then stop and rest,
Sit down and relax,
Breath deeply,
Breath freely,
Smell the fresh air,
Let your mind clear
Of the clutter that is the city

Take a look around you,
Let your eyes settle
On every inch of the scene
Let your gaze venture,
To every different tree
Set your mind,
To every different being

But don’t look too long,
There are too many things to see
A simple glance,
Not a deep stare
Let your eyes do the work,
Your mind far away
Try not to solve the mystery
Behind every gaze

Because you must not see
Through your eyes,
But rather with the eyes and innocence
You once possessed
Like a child,
A gaze wandering anywhere and everywhere
Curiosity ignited,
But forgotten
When something else catches your eye
Things seen,
But the reasons behind them
Left unknown
A deep mystery,
Something beyond what we know

Don’t overthink,
Just look around
Surround yourself,
With all the sights and sounds
Cleanse your mind,
With the purity of the breeze
Awash your heart,
With the cold mountain stream

And when you look,
But do not see,
Feel every sense
But do not understand,
You’ll find emotions in yourself
You’ve never seen before,
You’ll find a longing,
You’ve never wanted before
And You’ll find the peace,
You’ve searched for,
But never met before

See the sun rise and set,
Wonder why it is
See the birds make noises,
And animals scurry by,
And imagine why it’s so
But keep your questions unanswered
Try not to make true beauty
Into a hard and difficult study

And know this:
The truest beauty
Is always a mystery,
And a true mystery,
Has it’s own queer element of beauty

So many of us struggle to decipher the meaning behind everything we see. Sometimes the best way to enjoy it, is to just let it be a mystery.
