The Human Race

Appointments and schedules

 Time limits overdue,

 Restless and weary

 No time to let loose.


Hustle and bustle

 Rush and still late,

 Frenzied and frantic

 This can’t be our fate.


Get busy, let’s hurry

 Try to keep pace,

 Exhausted and tired

 Impatient, can’t wait.


Try to move forward,

 No time to waste;

 To make progress in life

 Advance and make haste.


Depleted and eager

 Worn out and fatigued,

 To create a better future

 We learn to succeed.


With pressing agendas

 And long list to-do,

 Chaotic commotion

 At the end of our fuse;


A spinning vortex of time;

 Life is streaming by quick.

 It seems just like yesterday,

 that we were mere kids.


Gone by in an instant,

 a sudden blink of my eye,

 everything I've ever known is changing,

 all I can do is wonder why.


So much stress to get something done,

 but does it matter what we do?

 Life flies by in an instant,

 it’ll all be over soon.


Relax, slow down

 Unwind and rest;

 Live for each moment

 And savor each breathe.


We try to accomplish so much,

 Leaving no time for family or friends;

 It’s a quick race to the finish

 When you burn your candle from both ends.

I really enjoyed this poem,

I think that the poem is very good, and it is easy to understand. The poem has rhythm, so it can not be read quickly. I really enjoyed this poem, it made me think about things that are expressed, the desire or wish that is completely out of the writers ability to change at least from her point of view...
This technique places an emphasis on those things the writer surrenders herself to, the language used to express the hectic pace of life to impact on both the writers spiritual and physical world.
Great write...
keep writing
