Slow down dear heart
You have but one body
A single mind for consuming
What’s my rush
I can’t learn it all
Hearts beat rapidly
Bodies urge
A mind craving details
I want, I need, I believe
Striving towards excellence
Heart quickening
Hands shaking
Mind alive, perceiving
Are these three deceiving me
I may know nothing
Heart slows
Hands rest
Mind goes back to dreaming
Stopping myself
My own worst enemy
