Don’t go so fast for life is short
Stop and stare with a child’s heart
Stop and stare at the greyish – blue sky line
Streaking through the sky scrapers of our time
Why should I have time and patience
To stand and stare at the beauty & brilliance?
For, ain’t I the chosen might
To lead this world from darkness to light?
Don’t feign ignorance, of life’s beauties
A welcome respite, from thy duties
Remember, my child, life is short
Stop and stare with all your heart
Life’s beauty lies in
Being the kingpin
Why should I stand by and ignore
As others race ahead for more and more
Take it from me, oh little one
I who have endured life, lost and won
Small and big, the events are many
Life is short, enjoy the journey
Yes indeed, oh wise one
You enlighten me with your wisdom
But, life is short, the pace is brisk
Let me enjoy the kick and the risk.
