Rome Was Not Built in a Day

Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day
As the old adage does say
So must our life be not lived in such a way
As though we’re always in a hurry

Live the moment, seize the day
But don’t focus on the numbers, it’s the quality
For life lived in such a hurried pace
Is not always reflective of a well-run race

Be patient with life, it’s not something to beat
Remember that it often takes a while to achieve something great
Just as it was some toil over time that built the eternal city
So must we continue to be a work in progress
If we are to leave a good legacy
