Teacup of life, when overflowing
Altruistically bathing those in our wake.
As it flows over, so too it runs dry
Aquiesce, slow down, lest serenity we forsake
Treadmill of life, a joy to behold
take time to balance the pace
Gathering speed beyond our scope?
Rest a while each task to face
Spirit and energy drive us on
Sharing, loving, caring acts
Faith would confirm our compassion, yet
Denial would shade us from fact!
Silence, silence drowns out the noise
For a time this is meant to be
Quiet realisation as I approach
A time to reflect. A time for me...
