Some things
Reminiscent
Of times gone by

As we try to keep up

With a never ending
Progression, and
A quite often felt
Concession

Of what we know
And want

Yet, we continue
The chase

Caught in a race
Started
Well Before
Our space was made

In this, yes,
Very beautiful place

We prioritize the
Next thing,
Without, maybe
Thinking

About the best thing
So
,

When the opportunity
Next arises,
Think twice, and
Maybe choose

A space
That reflects

A simpler life,
Which is always
Calling

Even when we
Resist, nay
Persist
In the chase

Allow yourself
The opportunity
To slow down,
And open up

To something
A little simpler
