Slow Down

The roads where we walk, the houses and cars
Are hiding this planet
We forget who we are.

The shops and possessions, our jobs and our greed
Are hiding our purpose
We forget what we need

It all happens so quickly, there’s no time to think
But where are we rushing
At such a great speed?

Thank you for commenting Stephen, I'm not able to evaluate which of the many modern dilemmas might be the greatest though, I fear we might be forgetting some of the many contenders if we rank this as the utmost. 😎

A timely poem, Aviva. It sums up our greatest modern dilemma. But first we have to slow down, as you say.

Thank you for your comment Nigel, it made me stop and think.

In life
we create
new crossroads
each time
we stop
and think.

Only at
the crossroads
of life
we stop
and think.
