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

The Artistry Of Life

Like an artist’s sketch
Gaining
Form and substance
As
Time passes

Vague outlines
With
Rough edges
Evolve into
Well defined
Silhouettes
Drawn by the hand
Of
Life experience

Once blank canvases
Take on hues
Of
Personalities
Vibrant or subdued

Fine lines
At the corners
Of
Eyes and mouth
Etched by
Cumulative
Joy and sorrow

Nuances
Of
Character
Painstakingly filled in
Year after year
Stroke by stroke

A work in progress
First breath
To last

No
Two portraits
Identical
