Slow It Down


Slow it down
Don’t go so fast,
Make what time you have left last,

Do you ever give thought?
As you rush through the day
To all those moments you’ve thrown away?

Do you ever not do what you should have done
And instead done something you think more fun?

Dance to the music,
Make your own beat,
Ignore other peoples’ rushing feet,

Slow it down,
Don’t go so fast,
Make the time you have last,
So you have no regrets about the past.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
