Hurry…Hurry…Fast…Fast

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
It
Never pays
To be too
Rash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Step out of
The role
In which you are
Cast

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Discover
life
Can be a
Bash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Take
Some time to
Savor the
Past

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Life’s
Much more than
Amassing
Cash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Show the world
You’ve got
Some
Sass

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Life isn’t a
Measly
Fifty yard
Dash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
In life’s marathon
Strive to
Finish
Last

  1. I completely agree!! I saw a photo the other day of a snowstorm in my city in the early 1900s that left 16 inches of snow. They didn’t have the means to clear it, so it just had to melt. I thought of how no one could handle that today because we can’t slow down and just take things as they come. I really like the poem & the clever way of reminding us the importance of slowing down😊💞!

  2. I really enjoyed this. It has a hectic quality in the words that contrast with what the words are saying. What is so nice about this is that I could feel the haste and the hurry all roaring past while the message was calm and moving slowly. I don’t think I’m making any sense here but …. I enjoyed this poem.
