You have been living in the fast lane for too long
Oh not the fast lane of promiscuity, decadence or booze
The fast lane of an ordered life, always running to catch up
From sun up to sun down, you start with a run
You compete with the sun to see who will rise first
Day after day you rise before the rooster, morning
routine and off to work, barely taking a break for 13 hours
You speed after sun-down trying to rush home to your kids
and family. As you drive fast your mind is racing fast too.
You think of what you didn’t do, what you did, what you
have to do. You beat yourself up when the result isn’t right,
when it’s not right enough & what needs correcting.
Fast fast fast no breaks, no holidays, no sleep.
Then one day life forces you to stop, pause, be still.
No work to rush to, gone. What now?
Forced to be still….
