No Surprises

No Surprises

A Poem by Simon J Halliday

Today's Poem

No Surprises

No surprises, things move slow
Some hope for change, but where to go?
The daily grind is safe and sure
And yet most say they're wanting more

So what's the secret in this maze?
Seek those who rise above the haze
And make a difference every day
They'll help you see there is a way

It's not illusion that lives on
For one day that will all be gone
It's simple truth that we now seek
And peace of mind is for the meek

So slowing down can help us all
As things speed up then all could fall
Confused?  You will be.  Life won't stop
And who could ever reach 'the top'?

More questions here than answers, yes
These words are not here to impress
A simple challenge, new thought rises
One day later ... no surprises?
