Life change

Busy, dizzy-  all speeds fast;

people on coffee

and adrenaline’s blast.

Hurrying, scurrying – all in a rush;

Life is chaotic

and time can’t last.

 

Bumping, annoying – this line’s so long!

strangers can’t see

that it’s all about me!

Anger and sarcasm flow as I scream;

hurting and hurling,

these “others” aren’t me.

 

Shocking and stopping – a moment in time.

Suddenly faced

with a heart that is kind!

Eyes seeing, heart hearing,

I’ve paused in the crush-

Life’s suddenly changed!

A moments panic

A moments panic, eyes open wide,

I booked the wrong date – what a surprise!

Where is the phone number?

How do I call?

I’m in another country still learning how!

 

Connection goes through, a gentle voice answers.

So good to hear that they are not too severe!

Sure we can do that!

Pleasure to help!

What a relief! Simple kindness brings peace!

 

Mistakes – they just happen, it’s all part of life.

One moment your sailing, the next it’s a wreck!

Life is a process.

Each breath brings new life!

Speed bumps just come to help me slow down!
