Wondering here, quietly
I get that we all need to slow down
Stop and smell the flowers
But what if… everything is needed
A day to slow down, a day to speed up
Maybe balance is not being the same every day
Maybe we go up and down, down and up
Each day one way, each moment a teacher
Different subjects, varying lessons
Caught myself speeding, loudly
Vibrantly moving towards a dream
Turning the page quickly
Excited for what is about to come
And this feels… right and needed
Maybe there is a need for speeding
Maybe I will arrive to my destination
Take a deep breath, look around
And start again, this time slowly, maybe.
