Slow

If you run too fast
You can’t tell what’s real
You pass by what’s real
Because you are in too much of a hurry
To go somewhere

If you run too fast
The rose will blur
The scent will not reach you
In your hurry to go somewhere

If you run too fast
You can’t contemplate
To contemplate
You need to meander
Take in what’s around you
Meditate!

If you run too fast
You may miss the entrance
To a secret garden!

If you run too fast
You won’t know
What’s real!
