I received a crash course in what's really important,

and it ain't 'stuff.'

 

It's humanity, and creativity, and enjoying what you do,

it's all of them, sure enough!

 

I used to be a prisoner to the daily grinding war,

until it was all stripped away.

 

I had no choice but to slow down, and let all of that go,

when I awoke to a brand-new day.

 

Now I see glimmers of the man I used to be, quite the downer,

if you don't mind me saying so.

 

Always in a hurry, it was rushing here, rushing there, dancing to the everyday,

missed so much I needed to know.

 

Of course, I couldn't see it at the time, was too busy being busy

to see the forest for the trees.

 

But now it's a different world, a different take on life

that these once-cynical eyes see.
