how we always seem to rush through life.


Playing at racing
thru the day
what does it all mean
if we stop
we might recognize
that things aren't as they seem
pushing hard to get it all
 done
to rush from work
 to arrands
 to kids
 to pets
to dinner to chores to bed
                                 to start it all again
it makes me want to slow  it all down
and enjoy each moment i missed
little things the kids go thru
and moments with my friends


I want to share it all with them
it's hard to know what to do
balence is the key, I know
simplicity the clue.


Juggling life is hard enough
with out having the blues.

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around, you could miss it." (Ferris Bueller's Day Off). There are only 23 hours, 59 minutes, 58 seconds in a day. We need at least twice that number to do what needs to be done. Thanx for sharing, Michelle.

Isn't it hard to make time for oneself and the family? So very true. We need to "Stop, Listen, Reflect" as I say in one of my poems. Great thought. Denise

Balance is the key, but one too often hard to grasp. A lot of emotion in this piece. Good work.

Perfectly said, too.
Lovely pic to go with the work.
