I've been on a hamster wheel lately.
One foot in front of the other is the only way to be.
Stop & smell the flowers is the advice I'm given,
can't you see? I'm trying, I'm trying. There are boxes to be chequed, i 's to be dotted, T's to be crossed.
Who's going to do it if it ain't me!?
I repeat to myself,
The melodrama & the rhythmic chanting takes over
Live happily "
Can't you see?
I'm trying, I'm trying
Let me off, I want to get off.
I'm not a hamster, I don't need the wheel. These two feet will take me as far as I want to go.
I don't live simply - though I try..
but I certainly live happily.
putting one feet in front of the other.
Breathe. Stop. Think
