Slow It Down

Thu, 04/03/2014 - 16:18 -- bkuhn09


If I change just one thing, I’d slow the world down a few.

Just for a day, an hour, a minute or two.

Today we all just move so fast.

We don’t slow down, running past.

No time to walk.

Rush, rush, rush.

No time to talk.

Hush, hush, hush.

We need to stop and smell the flowers,

See the world and laugh for hours.

Take the time to take it slow.

Spend a day without the go.



We need to stop and look at the world around us. We spend so much time rushing that we miss the small, beautiful parts of everyday life.
