It’s Okay to Rest


In a fast-paced world,
Trying to stay on top,
You push, push, push—
Push until you drop.

Trying to take advantage
Of every op—
Determined to let nothing
Hinder or stop.

You work, work, work;
Work up lots of stress.
But just remember—
It’s okay to rest.

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
