Time Overdrawn Spending so much time looking forward, ignoring the moments in which we live, juicing our lives for all it would give. Now the years are passing. Getting faster. We were looking forward to experiences. Now we're looking back at memories. Regretting what cannot be undone. Wishing we'd had a little bit more fun. It's a wonder we met at all. Priorities wrong. One day you were here. Now you're gone. Years spent running after things. Never stopping to laugh and sing. Running in circles until we slide into the grave. When's the last time you stopped to wave? Stuck on the hamster wheel, wondering, "What's the deal?" If you don't slow down, you're never gonna heal. 'cause bigger the wound, the more you need to feel.
This is a throwback poem from a previously published book. I’ll be posting throwbacks every Wednesday.
I read this during services at the 2018 sisterhood retreat.
