Just Slow Down

My poetical letter to people around me and life in general

Just Slow Down

Would you stop rushing it?
You're always running around
Could you relax a bit?
Or maybe just slow down?
Cause you're not helping it
So just give it some time


Whatever's meant to be
Will be when it should
And with you next to me
It can only be good
So let's just take a seat
And watch it all unwind


Maybe we were meant to be
More than just what we can see
Maybe things would happen
If we would only let them be
Maybe one day you and me
Could be what we're meant to be
Maybe we'd figure it out
If we'd just slow down


Would you stop rushing it?
There's only one life to live
Stop taking everything
And maybe learn how to give
Are you listening?
These are things you should know


There's more to happiness
Then getting what you want
There's more to love then just
Keeping it a box
You've got to give it out
You've got to let it go


Maybe we were meant to be
More than just what we can see
Maybe things would happen
If we would only let them be
Maybe one day you and me
Could be what we're meant to be
Maybe we'd figure it out
If we'd just slow down


Cause God only knows how our lives will play out
But we're so afraid of falling out
That we're gonna miss what life's all about
If we don't slow down
And see that


Fast food, fast cars and money
Will get you from A to B, but it's funny
Cause going somewhere gets you nowhere
But standing still might help you see that


Maybe we were meant to be
More than just what we can see
Maybe things would happen
If we would only let them be
Maybe one day you and me
Could be what we're meant to be
Maybe we'd figure it out
If we'd just slow down

I am 18 years old, and I absolutely love to write. I really could just write about everything, but personal issues and experiences are easiest for me.

:-) I'm always being told to slow down.
