Slow down. Give yourself respite from purposeless rat race.

Slow down, slow down, not so fast;
These paths are going to last.

Slow down this world is but round;
What you seek might have been found.

Why to reinvent the wheel?
Life cannot much new reveal.

Slow down for those who can’t move;
Help them to, their pain, remove.

Slow down, look back for a while;
Maybe you just missed a smile.

Don’t search Him in the world wide
He is always by your side.

Slow down, contemplate Lord’s feet;
Slowing down is not defeat.
