Running Away

Am I running away from life
when I stop doing what everyone does?
This running here and there
working crazy hours to buy
what we don’t need
with never a moment
to stop and enjoy
our beautiful world
is not how I want my life to be.

I want less work and busyness
more time to savor life
living a simple life
quiet, peaceful
not hurried to get
where I don’t want to go.

I’m not running away
rather embracing life
lived with awareness
and respect
not lost in shopping malls
crowded highways, tiny cubicles
where the sun never shines
no, that’s not the life for me.
