change of perspective

This post was written in 2 minutes.
I was laying out a pattern, slowly, deliberately, like there was time aplenty and suddenly it came to me how impatient and hurried I was doing the same about 30 years ago.

When young
I was in a hurry
and life a challenging sport
so much to do
so little time
and future far to short

Now old
I take my time
like life will always last
while most of it
will likely be
already in the past

I like this. There's a lot of truth to it.
