THE END OF THIS STORY

THE END OF THIS STORY ISN'T HERE YET
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER THE BEGINNING
THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT I CAN'T FORGET
WHO KNOWS WHAT THOSE MEMORIES MAY BRING

I'M ALWAYS RUSHING

I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SLOW DOWN

AS SILLY AS THAT SOUNDS

I'M ALWAYS RUSHING ALL AROUND

THE PRESSURE SURELY MOUNTS

2021 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 28

For the 2021 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, poets are tasked with writing a poem a day in the month of November before assembling a chapbook manuscript in the month of December. Today's prompt is to write a slow down poem.

Well, there are only three days left in this year's challenge. Wish time would slow down, but there's nothing I can do about it. Or is there?

For today's prompt, write a slow down poem. That is, write a poem about slowing things down. Or write about something that helps time slow down for you. Another option is to write about the friction between the fast life and the slow life.
