Poem: No Time to Hurry!

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Living in the Moment" by Jason Mraz

Watching minutes
by the clock’s hand,
rushing back-n-forth
with endless lists,
dissatisfies my body’s comfort.

Walking to the beat my own drum,
not the demands of others,
taking time to “smell the roses”,
absorbing each precious moment,
letting my inner self rejuvenate.

Upsetting others with my slow pace,
accomplishing goals
with a turtle’s grace,
relaxing within my own space,
no time to hurry,
no time to waste.

No matter what
the day might bring,
I seek the hidden beauty,
not minding what others say
suits me just fine,
for it is my day.
