Slow down or race right along

Chasing is exhausting Yet we chase We are born into the race And so we learn to hurry up From early on Tired the norm Our state of being Hard to remember Anyway There is no time for that Remembering Life’s too short for that Who wants to live in the past Anyway Let alone…

Learning to let go can take a lifetime, maybe more. Learning to flow with life and it’s rhythms can take a lifetime, maybe more.
