3 WW

This is my second time participating in 3 word wednesday.
This little poem was the first thing to come to mind.. I see a pattern forming in my head this week! the words are
rest, sidewalk, twice

As we stroll down this sidewalk known as life
So harried by our daily stresses and individual strife
We have a tendency to sprint blindly along
Ignoring Life's surrounding beauty, Life's melodic song

Instead we should set for ourselves a leisurely pace
decline the invitation to the fat cat rat race
Smell the flowers once or twice on the way
We will feel better at the end of each rewarding day

Slowing down helps us add some spice, a pinch of zest
After all, We were just rushing to our inevitable eternal rest

I tried saying "fat cat rat race" several times fast and failed miserably :)

To quote a song lyric, "I'm in a hurry and I don't know why."

Well done. Thanks for participating again :)
