Hurry Up Slow Down

Running out

Of time

Need to hurry

My life up

And slow it down

To do more of what

I want

Rather than what

I need to do.

Feeling time slipping

Clock ticking

Life fleeting

Makes me

Crazy, longing for

The quiet

Peace found in

The weekend morning hours

By myself.

  2. So true! Those precious hours of solitude not only go along way to refresh the spirit, but make you wonder why stillness and quiet and living at a slower pace isn’t the norm instead of the exception. I think about this all the time and cherish the space in my weekends. ❤
