Chill Out Already!
up in the cares of the world, overwhelmed by life,
early in the morning until late at night.
Insanity reigns while the
business storms swirl, enraged.
are left behind! I need to stay
focused and engaged.
on every opportunity, driving with no real purpose;
Annoyed with everyone around
you as you reject their service.
Xeroxing everything to cover
your tracks—constantly worried;
Always slaving in
fast-forward mode, overworked and hurried.
Looking at the doctor
incredulously as she conveys the bad news:
Rocking your world as your mind
races, What am I going to do?
Ending your busy madness and
replacing it with another flavor:
Afflicted with one of the worst
things in the world: I have cancer.
Determined now to listen to
your friend from the "crazy" church:
better chill out already and get
right with God: lesson learned.
