Day 4: Slowly

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!
