Where to?

Big city, morning light;
No time anywhere in sight.
Everyone's hurrying, to where?
Kids, cars, men and women,
Whether at eight or ten;
Some destination, somewhere.

Late evening, lights on;
And bright, noisy honks.
The same flight, to where?
Life’s all a hurried flight;
Of climbing steps, greater, higher right?
Everyone wants to reach there!

But where to?
Slow down, please will you.
Before it’s a bit too late.
Feel the wind in that swaying tree.
Where there’s calm and free,
Wouldn’t you like to be there?

Not a great piece of poetry, nevertheless expresses what I felt traveling to work one day and felt I need to capture the same.

    Very true for the world of today! This has been my plea to the people for quite some time now! As they say, stop and smell the roses! :-) Well written!
