Slowing Down

after the rushing

all that rushing

 

rushing to climb the career ladder

rushing to buy the best

 

watching others

pass on

while I work

 

my mind

always wanting

wanting this

wanting that

going for security

& recognition

 

how many man-made gods

did I follow–

money

recognition

and greed

did I put these  in front

of the God I dedicated

my life to?

 

I can’t bring

back those I loved

I can’t tell them

what I

want to say

 

I will

slow down

and

develop

relationships

with others

and my God

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
