although this is a poem

i thought this would fit better under "words to live by" ; it's beautiful.

SLOW DANCE

have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
listened to the rain
slapping on the ground?
ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

you better slow down

don't dance so fast
time is short

the music won't last

do you run through each day
on the fly?
when you ask how are you
do you hear the reply?
when the day is done
do you lie in your bed
with the next hundred chores
running through your head?

you better slow down

don't dance so fast
time is short

the music won' last

ever told your child
we'll do it tomorrow
and in your haste
not see his sorrow?
let a good frienship die
cause you never had time
to call and say hi?

you better slow down

don't dance so fast
time is short

the music won't last

when you run so fast to get somewhere
you miss half the fun of getting there
when you worry and hurry through your day
it's like an unopened gift
thrown away.

life is not a race

do take it slower

hear the music

before the song is over

Let peace abound inside your mind...
Like a waterfall washing away the
things you house that could never be~
peace and love. Effort needed and a
good teacher. But um yeah let's party!
