    slow down…
    Lest we MISS OUT on the
    RIVERS & STREAMS of
    Life’s many ways of
    Showing us
    What we need to know

    Slow down…
    Enjoy the
    LAKES & PONDS
    And the WATERFALLS
    Of fun things
    Each day has to offer
    …the worth of a SMILE from
    An ELDER or CHILD
    As you cover the last minute
    Of the last mile
    Of your journey

    Slow down…
    See the MOON and the STARS
    For all that they are
    And HOLD the HAND
    Of the ONE with you

    Slow down…
    Say a kind HELLO
    To someone you don’t know
    And allow that STRANGER
    To become a FRIEND

    Slow down…
    Make
    “I LOVE YOU”
    Mean more than
    “I NEED YOU”
    To the one you hold
    TRUE

    Slow down.

    Words of wisdom from on High, no doubt. And hey, nature has slowed my *** down so all I CAN do is appreciate the aromas of roses, good coffee, and the intoxicating scent of a nubian Queen.

    Ain't in no hurry now, and didn't know what I was missing when I was.

    Speak truth, Baller!

    I enjoyed the feel of this piece.

    All the wonderful rewards
    if we simply "slow down"
    to receive them.
    Thanks for reminding me. :wink:
