Slow Down for Life
People on the highway always in a rush.
In a hurry to get nowhere and anywhere.
Weather they’re walking or driving.
I was driving home one day and a car passed me speeding by way faster than the speed limit.
They arrived at their destination the party store a mile ahead of where I was.
I shook my head as I drove by thinking “what a petty cause.”
Endangering everyone on the road for what?
Many are in a hurry miss the simple and important things in life.
As small as the words “I love you,” from a loved one.
Too much in a hurry to notice otherwise.
Or your children want to tell you about what they did in school but you’re in a hurry like a fool.
Rushing through life too fast.
I savor life like a fine wine because you can’t turn back the hands of time to redo the past.
