What’s the rush?

Faster, faster!
Better, better!
More, more!
But what if the destination
Is not well thought of?

Bigger, bigger!
Higher, higher!
But what if the concept
Is not a good one?

Sometimes we have to
Slow… down…
Come to a stop

And think about where we are
Where we are heading
What’s the rush?

There is no point
In going nowhere fast
There is no point running
Without a plan

So often we get caught up in life
Taking a step back
Can help a lot

Why are we doing what we do?
What is our ultimate goal?
Who are we trying to please?
What is it that makes us happy?

Whose race are we running?
Ours or theirs?
Who has set our goals?
Us or them?

So, let’s slow down
Let’s take stalk
Let’s reflect
Before we go on
