She was a suburban girl,
While the everyday fast life is what she lived,
She craved the slow pace of a smaller town.
She liked stopping and smelling flowers,
Or digressing on her way to work,
Only to find a new route to get there faster.
She hoped on some days the world would be a different place,
That there’d be more justice and patience,
But she’d find herself losing her calm while driving in heavy traffic.
She yearned for a change,
She was a free spirit.
But slowly the realities of life – made her what she never wanted to be!
She had changed, ever so slowly that she didn’t even notice it!
