This is a reblog. Thank you Kate!!! I thought her poem tells us to pause, to be, which, although it wasn’t what she wrote, also means to recognise and live with the awesomeness of the world (like the chirping birds I hear right now, or when I’m up in the night).
Most of us just drift through life
so focused on our daily strife
that we seldom take stock
of the bigger picture, what we really want ..
Swept along in the blur of busyness
do you dare heed your dreams?
Or so complaisant in societal obligations
rigidly conforming without pause!
Think a moment, what is your purpose?
Is this busy blur doing you any kindness?
What might benefit you more?
Can you accomplish that without being too poor?
Assess your values and goals
make some changes before you suffocate
buried by your own burdens
please don’t die wondering …
if you could have made that change?
So long as there’s life, there’s hope.
Would you be interested in sharing a reason to live – along with a title – here?
