Quick or Slow?

Every breathe, each moment
our length of life depletes

from the moment we are born
we approach death

our attitudes and behaviours
impact on the pace

if wise and healthy
we can enjoy a good life

if harmful to ourselves or others
we hasten the pace and feel the burden

we all have the choice
to meander or quicken

are your attitudes prolonging life
or are you rushing headlong into whatever comes next?

  1. Important poem and beautiful photo! OH, that face! 🙂
    I don’t mind a balance of quick and slow (as to the daily pace).
    But, I’ve learned how to slow things down considerably as I get older…
    I say “no” a LOT more things…you know, when people ask me to volunteer or to do stuff or to go places, etc.
    Slow-Gentle-HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. Slow definitely I’m. Despite living in that part of the world where life and those who are living it are constantly sprinting around, I’m as slow as a snail.
    But happy I’m for who I’m and this matters the most 🙂
