Back to Basics

Let’s get back to basics,
slow down –
how did it get so complicated?

Let’s remember how it all began,
when we had time,
and there was nowhere else to be.

Let’s take a walk and talk,
sift through the past,
and remember who we are.

Go back in time,
to be present,
to be mindful.

It’s nice to stop,
and have nowhere to go –
no one else to be.
