Like a broken record, they say

I should stop this senseless play

And chase my goals, as if today

Is the last chance before Doomsday.


No, I haven’t forgotten at all

The dreams left to realize before final fall

But I choose to grow steady and tall,

Unlike a mad bull hitting the wall.


I’ve wailed &  often wiled away

Enough time, worried what the future’ll say

But I believe in my Lord to whom I pray,

I know that I’ll reach my goals one day.


So why must I hurry every second?

And why must I worry every moment?

Sometimes, it’s okay to take it slow

Trust God, and go with the flow.
