Urgent Clocks

Our insistent alarms
                                        And the first rays of sunlight
Send us scatterings like cockroaches,
Chasing the who
                         the where
                                        the when,
Propelling us forward
 In our agitated race for survival.

We forget our need to
S l o w    D o w n,
Enjoy the now.
