Stop. - Poem by Ruth Walters

Stop, take a breath,
look around you,
take in the scene,
make time for you.

Don't rush,
you have a lifetime,
don't stress,
don't fret.

Help someone
when you can,
be kind,
smile every day.

Stop, look about you,
be aware,
don't be scared
to day dream.

Remember to live
while you're alive,
for yourself,
not the system.

Pause every time
you feel sad,
think about
a warm breeze

spring flowers,
and sigh

and if this works
for you,
pass it on
and remember me.

    Like something I would expect to find engraved on an old stone when on some friutless travel. I especially like the part about living for oneself, not for the system. (Report) Reply
