Life zips by at the speed of light.
Here we are, given a chance
to hop off the merry-go-round
and take a good look around.
Do a bit of social solitude
… get to know ourselves once again.
Does the reflection in the mirror
match deep to heart within?
Childhood remnants splash
with paint to canvass there.
Memories splash to the surface
whether tight or unaware.
We leave a print upon this earth
whether light or dark or blurred.
Truth is all that matters
with the stories that occurred.
Answers to the questions
may need to wait another day.
Yet Praise to God Almighty
for He will show us of the way.
Use this time of slow
to catch the fireflies of night.
Believe in this fine journey
and all will be alright.
