Taking it Easy

No longer will we fear the future
or wish for the could haves
cause we’re still right here,
we’ve still got our youth,
no liabilities, no constraints

only our self imposed time frames and to-do-lists holding us back,
creating schedules, sculpting routines,
that was us speeding through life
in one straight line that seemed the only way forward
dropped the peripherals,
the variety too.
We forgot how to live,
when we were too busy chasing an unreasonable dream

Makes me wonder, though,
was it a dream or just a fear?

Now we’re living
carefree, taking it slow,
stopping, reflecting,
reaping the benefits as we sew…
