If you can go 70 miles an hour all the time
Don’t mind me in the slow lane!
I’ve gotten to know myself
I’m a sprinter
For a while I can enjoy the fast lane
And then I need to take a break
I used to push myself too much a lot of the time
Not listen to the “I’m tired” signals!
Compare myself to others all the time
Crash and burn after a while
And truth be told
Sometimes, I still do!
But I try to pace myself
No, I won’t be everywhere all the time
I need time to reflect as well
I need time to write and process my thoughts
So, it will be the slow lane sometimes
The no-rush lane
The smell-the-roses lane
The relax and play lane
So my mind and body can recuperate
And get ready for the fast lane!
