Time passes at a hurried pace.
We go through life, often in haste.
Each day no different from the rest.
Slowing down would be a test.

To say we're happy would be a lie.
At this rate we soon could die.
To catch our breath would be a sin.
We need to say when, is when.

Let's take a moment and slow down.
Reflect on joys that keep us sound.
These moments are so few.
Take the time, your life renew.

I quite agree. Life's to short to rush it. I wrote a (kinda) poem along the same lines a couple of hours ago called Hurdles - or something like that! It's at

Amen Well and beautifully said. Could use that right now to slow down.

This is so very, VERY true.

We really need to learn to appreciate the little things more.

Just each and every little thing that makes us smile.

Life has surely become so fast paced theses days that we hardly stop to take a look around!

We do need to slow down to appreciate small mercies...

Thank you for your comment today, cracked my ass up, girlie.

AND yes, I LOVE tuna.

I eat it right out of the can like I'm a freaking cat.

It's SO yummy.

Thank you for thinking of me, you are truly a doll.

I hope you are well, and I'll respond soon.

Sending spinach love to you....

I am SO mad I missed the nakedness.

Can you wear bells next time, or something, so maybe I can hear you and come a runnin'?

You summed it up perfectly. If only we could all take a few moments and do something with our lives instead of traveling at speeds where we can't even enjoy life. Thanks for posting this.
