I fell without boundaries
I fell without looking at my surroundings
I didn't pause
I didn't stop
I didn't check my feelings
I didn't voice where needed
I should of slowed down
I should of been sound
I should of spoke up
I should of thrown out a
Safety net to catch
My fall..

It's a routine
and there is a disruption
Everything is fine
On the surface
Dig deeper, an eruption.

Let's believe in it
but worry is constant companion,
Hope is whimsical
It flutters and breaks
And burns again with flame.

It was a dream,
A beginning and the end,
A living breathing trend.
But a life is beyond imagination,
Ups and downs and a show.

Now to this slowdown,
We don't know,
The time in abundance
Is going to drain
A fear turning to a new name.

The year has been
straight out of some ******* movie
It is building and building
and no one knows
what kind of end it will bring.
sometimes it’s right next to you
but you’re not having a clear view

you can be in the right place
and still feel like you’re loosing the race

but why do you rush? why do you hurry?
it makes all the images come out so blurry

take it easy, slow down a bit
it’s simple, yes I admit,
it will just make your mind split

now you’re counting pro and contra
trying to find your personal mantra

you are good thoughts and bad ones
you decide what energy your body runs

so slow down a bit
take a breath and don’t quit

happiness is right next to you,
so relax your mind and enjoy the view.

Curtains open,
I allow everything in the world to see inside

Barefoot on the beach
I allow the world upon my feet with every tide

Half past midnight
I allow the moonlight to caress my skin

Once dawn arrives I marvel at the sunrise with a grin

I've slept on many a clouds in my dreams

With the sun as my blanket warming me with every one of its beams

I love the smell of fallen leaves all piled up

Coffee beans and their aroma that fill my cup

The crackle of the fireplace as the snow gently falls upon my face

I love that I have learned that life is not a race

I live it now
I live it at my pace

I have to go now
I have a relationship with my oft' muses that I want to continue to grow

Albeit, slow

Time runs down a waterfall
Accelerating at 9.81 meters/sec^2
There is no point in jumping ahead
We are all going to the same place
So let's enjoy this waterfall

Why is it
that I only sit quietly
in the morning?

Am I allowed just
one breath
of wholeness
before the barrage
of the day?

What would happen
if I claimed
all my other breaths
in the name of peace -
of saving a life?

What would the world
do with me?

Can you please go slower
Slower when its time
Or faster
Faster when its right
The odds are against my favor
When there is time
Is there ever time

Why worry for youth if in your heart you're forever young
If your joy is kept alive
If your smile is still bright
Why worry for the future of gray hairs and parchment skin
If love is had would it be so bad
To one day sit and reminisce without the threat of immortality
Without the prison of eternal youth
Fun for years
Fun for hours
Eternity towers
Appreciate the world
When the spring in your step has gone sour
Appreciate the season
Stop and smell the flowers
Feel the snow
The cold
The pain that as a youth you were in a rush to rid
What have you to say after your rushing worries have rushed away
What memories can you retain if you speed through to the end
You can sit for years and muse, pretend
Make a plan
Take your time
Life may be short but it's a short long while
Especially to the end

long-legged brothers
daddy long legs, too

hurry, scurry

wait up,
I can't keep up with you

slow down
wait for me

I'm lagging
don't you see



always feeling in a hurry

so much
you write too fast

it's like walk-running
in the past

slow down...
I lag behind it's true

slow down, wait for me
I can't keep up!

I can't keep up with you!
I know I likely miss a lot of real gems but oh lordy! it is hard to keep up. I still have short legs and walk fast :-)
