Dancing in circles
Wondering amongst the crowd
Spinning too fast
I should probably lay down
A busy life is all I see
Distractions. Errands.
Is this really the American Dream?

Working so hard but where has it gotten me?
Life is complicated enough
Why make it harder for me?

Being present is what it stands for
A gift.
Instead my mind races to the next task.
Working and not living
The joy doesn’t last.

Knowing I should slow down
The time is ticking fast
Blinding noise. Limitations.
Setbacks. Mistakes. Life lessons.
Burning into me. Leading the way to
make the right choices for me.
