No Need To Rush - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

when i was a child
i dreamed of being free
spending hours thinking
what i could be
now, many years behind me
my thoughts remain the same
and i haven't changed my name
but there are somethings
better left to someone who knows
there's no need to rush it
rushing only causes pain

you told me you'd meet me
at second and st. clair
and when you didn't show
were you sure i'd be there
sometimes it's hard to wait
sometimes it's better to be late
say who wants to watch the tents go up
and the circus clowns coming down

honey, it's been said before
honey, don't you know
it goes both ways
some people sleep util morning
some people sleep all day
some people fight for freedom
some say it doesn't pay
oh, nobody wins at every game
and there's no need to rush it
rushing only causes pain
