The Rush

We race around
Flying fast
For work
Love ones
And numerous others
Reasons Good and Sound

 

We run and run
To escape
To be on time
To ignore

 

You’d think we’d be gone tomorrow
With all our rush, rush, rushing
We run and run and run
Finding more and more reasons to do so

 

Piling high, the stress, the need, the anxiety
Those outside say slow down
We shrug them off
Saying they know nothing

 

Slow down they say
Trying to help
It doesn’t matter
With ears plugged tight

 

Emotional ups and downs
We rush faster
We’re fine we say
They wrong, we can handle this

 

Slow down
Enjoy life
See the sights
Breathe in the moment

 

But things need to be done
All by ourselves?
We need to learn
We need to learn

 

We rush
Work before play
And create mile long to-do list
Those who say Slow down, seem to rush as well

 

We need to learn
To enjoy life
To ask for help
To balance work and play

 

We need to learn
How not to create more work for ourselves?
How to trust others and let them in
We need to rush, yes but also slow down when needed
