Speed

I’ve hurled myself through life

Pushed myself for so long that

it has always felt like normal speed

But something has stopped me of late

(My own body and spirit, I suspect)

And now I am practicing my amble

I am unraveling the ball of spin within

Going to find the real speed of me

 

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: amble

  1. Practicing our own amble – alas, something we all need to do eventually. It’s hard when forced upon us though before we’re ready. I went through that slow down myself years ago because of chronic pain. But in some ways it was a blessing in disguise. Enjoying the “amble” now… Hope you find your own sweet pace to be as rewarding. 🙂
