Speed Of Life Poem by Lyn Paul

Speed Of Life

Rating: 4.8

What... are we doing?
Running, Rushing
Shouldn't we...
Be slowing Down?
Losing Life
We should be living
We are not!
We are working
Hours long
Earning, spending
Yet not living
Running, rushing
Before Our time
We are not living
Too Busy!
Running, rushing
To get nowhere.
On Arrival...
You stop,
Think again.
Running, rushing - WHY?
We Need to live
To feel
To breathe
The Speed of Life

Speed of life is so so true your words are on the pulse of busy lives...but there is a light at the end of the tunnel...retirement and its great providing you don't wear yourself out and dance the years away...cheers Lyn

True poem. The time seems to run so fast these days that it almost feels that I am also running out of sitting space. Everywhere I go or do there is something to do, a need to rush.. One day I hope we will all unite our hearts to a time where space invites us to lay down right away instead of running out....

I add: we don't have time to stand and stare to enjoy the beauty of nature because we don't have leisure!

Life is moving fast due to impact of time on it. We are feeling the truth behind universe. In silence generally we feel connection between life and universe. An amazing poem is beautifully written that attracts us to re-visit.
