Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Where Are You Running Off To?

I ran breathlessly toward impossible goals.
Sue Bender
I did not know the goals were impossible

I never thought to ask

where we were all going in such a hurry

I am not sure that I would have cared
because the running became the goal
Just kept running

And trying to reach 

some phantom finish line

And then one day my breath caught up with me
and the sigh I released ask "why"?

And when I could not answer
I stopped running

and I began to live
and that's poetiquejustis
“Slow down. Take a deep breath. What’s the hurry?
    Why wear yourself out? Just what are you after anyway?"
