take a breath;

take a breath, take a breath
and stop, halt time
even if it is in your own
little world.

smell the flowers
smell the world
and all its wonders.

see what you have been missing?
missing your entire life?

just stop everything
put down your busy life
your ringing off-of-the hook
blackberry with its thousands of emails.
put down the endless thoughts and chatter
that run relentlessly in your mind
of everything that you need to do
in the small amount of time
that you don't even have.

stop, stop, stop
you need a break
really, you do.
when would ever enjoy
what the world around you
gives you each and every day?
retirement is a long way off
for such beautiful memories
so why not stop, stop, stop
and make them now?
