Going Slow

No need to hurry, no need to rush.
Where do you need to go?
It all can wait, stop for a while,
You've just got to take it slow.

Don't zoom through life,
Smell the roses, take a break,
You've got plenty of time.
Slow and steady wins the race.

You don't want to miss out,
Speed is not the key,
Life's not a competition,
Slow is what you've got to be.

Turtles like to move slow,
And they have a long lifespan,
Maybe we should be like them,
They've got a pretty good plan.

If you spend your whole life rushing,
Where do you think you'll get?
We all end up in the same place,
So have you caught on yet?

Don't go fast, enjoy the ride,
It is better that way.
So when you're asked why you go slow,
You will know what to say!
