So anxious to behold the fruits of her labor,
she abandons the thought of savoring the cool breeze
on a sweltering summer day.
Pondering on her next engagement,
she remains oblivious to those around her
basking in the ambiance of life.
she forgets what’s paramount.
How could she neglect to smell the roses,
or hearken to melodious songs of the mockingbird?
The clock continues to tick tock.
Time waits for no one…
Yet she continues to catapult through life,
unknowingly sacrificing immense amounts of possibilities
to create irreplaceable memories.
Slow down sweetheart…or one day you’ll find yourself waking up with regrets,
in search of something you never thought you’d wish you had.
