So Fast and So Slow

Poem about our fast world.

The world is so fast
When we want to slow down

Everything around you is fast
Cars driving fast

Even when we have to slow down
Even walking is fast

Looking at my colorful garden
Purple, blue and yellow are the most

Light, dark and in between
None of them are fast but staying where they are

Flowers and plants are staring at me
Slow as they are today, slow they will be tomorrow

These flowers remind me of the world it was
These flowers remind me of the world it can be again

SLOW will be in capitals in my mind
To find the inner calm self

To feel the peace that I need in life
Enjoying the little things in my life
