A busy life, a busy day, so much to do,
Running round in circles, trying to see things through.
The minds in confusion, stretched in every way,
Maybe a sudden stop is what you need today.
Take a sudden respite, take a step or two back,
And see that peace and calm is what your senses lack.
Pull back on the reigns before your life begins to sink,
Call it hesitation, but it gives you time to think.
Without hesitation, all caution could be lost,
Without hesitation, your world could be the cost.
A quiet time, a quiet day, free to be you,
Free to drift around, to choose what you want to do.
The mind can seek out harmony, rest in bliss,
Leave the world far behind, there’s nothing there to miss.
Wallow in peacefulness, recharge and recover,
Look around you and see what you can discover.
Maybe take a glance at the craziness still there,
Then of another’s plight, you may become aware.
Without hesitation, you could stretch out your hand,
Without hesitation, you could help them to stand.
