Weekly Writing Challenge

I chose an originally drafted poem of mine for Today’s Writing Challenge

NIGHTINGALE’S SONGnightinggale

It’s true what They say,

Whomever They are,

They’re right when they say: To Be Still is to Go Far.

Our World, so fast-paced

With the 3G, 4G, and telecom interlaced.

Our Children are learning how to love more things, but understanding less how to Love

Caught in the hustle and bustle, the traffic-jam mess,

We Work more and Live less.

To turn off the noise, to shut it all out,

One must cease to rush, to pass, to shout.

So different from what arrogant-laden society boasts,

We must seek to give Humility our high toasts.

Find the things that make your heart smile,

Be it knitting, painting, swimming a mile.

You won’t find Life’s answers at the end of a bottle

Nor will you find Life’s passions at a drug rave,

Amidst sweating bodies full throttle.

Listen,

Lie Down.

Not to Sleep.

Just to Wonder.

Open your Mind’s Eye to the years gone by.

Breathe Deep.

Drink it all in.

You are who you are now because of where you’ve been.

Slow Down.

Body and Mind

Feel yourself removed from the daily Grind.

Shut off the peripheral sounds.

One

By

One.

Until the last floorboard has creaked

And the nightingale’s song is gone.

For it’s true what They say,

Whomever They are,

They’re right when they say: To Be Still is to Go Far.
